Our driver’s safety has played a large role in who we are and how we maintain the highest safety standards with our drivers and equipment.
Today, in the trucking industry, many drivers are fatigued, eat a poor diet, and have little opportunity to exercise. Truck drivers don’t often think it’s possible to change their lifestyle, but here at Collins Trucking, we understand that isn’t the case. In fact, we are determined to provide as much good information and opportunities to educate our drivers on some healthy alternatives.
While implementing wellness programs in the trucking industry isn’t necessarily easy, it is fast becoming an imperative for our industry. Research is increasingly pointing out the hidden expense of unhealthy drivers, from increased health care costs to higher accident rates.
In 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration sponsored its first International Conference on Commercial Driver Health and Wellness to discuss how to create an effective driver health and wellness program. This is just one more indicator of the importance of a strong Wellness program for truck drivers.
The benefits of implementing a wellness program for our drivers include:
Decreased health care and workers’ compensation costs
Greater control over insurance premiums
Continuous improvement of safety records
Improved employee morale and job satisfaction
Help to attract and retain healthier, safer drivers
The choice then is clear and just another factor in our dedication to the health and well-being of our drivers.
