Trucking Along is a holistic wellbeing programme aimed at helping truck drivers keep themselves fit for the road. Truck Driving can be a very isolating and sedentary profession, which can lead to a range of health and wellbeing issues if this is not balanced with positive activities. This programme focuses on common driver health issues and seeks to offer some guidance on how to create and maintain healthy habits. The programme encourages people to talk and start the conversations. The logo symbolises that not everyone is trucking along okay and perhaps we need to do more to address these important topics. If you are an employer, this campaign may help to get the conversations started with your team, or if you are a driver looking to change your lifestyle, these resources can be a valuable tool to raise awareness.
The Trucking Along programme video and resources are available to Members of the New Zealand Trucking Association. They are available on the website below, or you can request the Road Safety Truck to visit your organisation to put your team through the programme. Thank you to our members and Key Partners for making this initiative possible.
The Trucking Along programme is an awareness tool designed to identify common health and wellbeing issues within the transport industry and offer tips that may help people develop a healthier lifestyle. The programme should not be used to self-diagnose. Please seek professional advice if you are experiencing any issues that concern you, that may be address in this programme. If you need to talk to a counsellor confidentially, please call or text 1737 at any time.
LET'S GET STARTED
We have made the Trucking Along programme available to NTA members online. This programme is usually run from the NTA Road Safety Truck, however we cannot reach everyone around the country, so to avoid missing out, simply click the link below, sign in when prompted, request the programme resources (which will be posted to you), then sit back and watch the videos with your team. You'll see we have also included the Worksafe Trucking Induction Video and printable resource, which is a great addition following on from our Trucking Along video. You can also request the Road Safety Truck to visit your business and we will work with you to try and schedule a visit.
