The Challenge. While many safety and risk professionals are struggling to prevent injuries…
There’s a small group who are decreasing injuries on a consistent basis…
And it’s not because they are better safety/risk professionals than you…
Or that they more of an expert than you – far from it.
It’s all because they are using a time-tested process proven to:
✅ Determine the root cause of injuries
✅ Identify customized injury prevention programs
✅ Seamlessly implement those programs
Imagine it’s hiring time, and you have questions about a potential employee’s ability to perform a job. How can you find out?

Your drivers are busy folks and they may be thinking they don’t have the time or energy to exercise. But physical activity is critical for keeping energy levels up because it boosts circulation and improves heart health. Active bodies sleep more soundly because exercise helps with stress-management. And we all know that truck driving is a very stressful job.
At first glance it seems too simplistic. Can eating the right foods really affect driver fatigue? The answer is a resounding “Yes!” Eating the right food is essential not just to a driver’s overall health but to energy levels as well. If drivers eat too much of the wrong foods, on the other hand, they’ll fatigue much more quickly.
In this time of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s more important than ever to stay as healthy as possible. It’s one of the most important things everyone can do – besides social distancing. Why?

In this series of blogs, we’re going to talk about ways that truck drivers can maximize their health – especially those very important drivers who are delivering essential supplies to the public.
