Driver Wellness (US)
Think about the truck you drive. Would you try to drive that truck if the brakes were faulty? How about if the wheels were over-inflated? Or even if you didn’t have any gas in the tank? Stupid questions, right? No good driver would drive a truck with any of these conditions. But, would you try to drive your truck if you hadn’t been sleeping very well for the past week? How about if your doctor has expressed concerns about your blood pressure or heart health? When it comes to your truck’s physical condition, it may be easy to see when it’s unsafe to drive. When it comes to your physical condition, the answers may not be quite as clear. The purpose of this course is to provide you with information about how to maintain your health with the same level of care you use to maintain your vehicle. We’ll talk about some of the common health concerns for commercial truck drivers. We’ll also explore some things you can start doing right now to improve your physical condition. Of course, in addition to doing the things you’ll learn in this course, you should consult your doctor, who can monitor your progress, help you adjust your plan and perform checkups. Now, let’s get started!
