What’s the wear and tear on average UPS driver?

Just curious if anyone has information about what happens to a drivers body daily in regards to ergonomics, average distance walked, average amount of weight carried, pounds of pressure on specific joints? What amount of force it takes to close bulkhead door, rear door, etc. I know every route is different, so there isn’t a one size fits all answer, but just curious if anyone has data or statistics. I’m sure UPS does all kinds of studies on this. Just want to know how certain repetitive motions effect your body and what happens long term.

Do you need an air compressor or tire gauge

A lot of people that work here are a bit dramatic about it. I feel like cleaning is harder work because usually I’m sweating bullets just doing laundry but I can go a whole day without sweating at all at UPS.

UPS is more mental and emotional endurance than physical imho.

Depends on the route. Some drive all day, some unload a lot of bulk, some do 200 plus stops per day. Each is different.

My liver took a dirty beating in my working days. Other than that if you aren't a runner gunner you should survive ok.

Sounds like you’re fishing for a class action.

You should be more concerned with liver function on some of these guys.
