Ben’s annual survey helps the industry charity understand what health & wellbeing-related issues have been affecting automotive industry people over the past 12 months. Ben then uses the information collected to ensure the charity provides the support services people need now and in the future.

By taking part, respondents also enable Ben to let automotive employers know what health & wellbeing support employees would like to see in their workplace. The aim is to directly help individuals, as well as helping build a more supportive and resilient automotive industry.

Last year’s survey indicated that:

  • 99% of automotive workers were personally affected by a health and wellbeing issue over the 12-month period
  • Stress was the most common issue (66%), followed by poor sleep and low mood
  • Anxiety and depression issues are more common in the automotive industry than in the rest of the UK working population (1 in 3 versus 1 in 6)
  • High workload was the biggest driver of stress in the workplace.
