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 resources are available to Full Members of the New Zealand Trucking Association. They are downloadable PDF's, 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.
