Commuting is generally described as a modern society issue; despite the relevance of this phenomenon, only few studies investigated occupational and health effects of commuting on workers exposed to it. According to the 15th census of the Italian population, in Italy about 29 millions of people (48,6% of total resident population) daily moved to reach their work. During last ten years, this number increased of about 2.1 millions of people, and also time and distances needed to reach work grew, with a potential high impact on health and environment. Thus, the aim of this study is to analyze the possible relationship between commuting and health effects on a group of workers exposed to this risk factor.
