Despite awareness of truckers’ value to the supply chain profession, is your business doing enough to help them preserve their health? It’s something to really consider.

No matter your profession, being physically fit helps you sustain and maintain your life wellness. When it comes to driving, staying fit can be a big challenge.

A physically and mentally demanding profession, driving often demands drivers put their health second to the job. Because of these demands, a truck driver needs to get proper rest, eat nutritionally dense foods and maintain a realistic exercise routine. However, taking care of your body can be the biggest challenge to overcome simply due to the nature of the job. What exactly are the challenges trucker drivers experience?

A National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health study found obesity among truck drivers to be over two times higher than the US working population. Additionally, a very high percentage of truck drivers smoke tobacco and suffer from diabetes. A stressful occupation fraught with unexpected challenges, a study by HireRight reveals that one in five truckers leave the profession partly due to concerns about ill health.

Truck Stops Help the Supply Chain Profession and Drivers

The profession is aware of the health challenges troubling truck drivers and we’re seeing changes at many truck stops. A growing number provide healthy menu alternatives and exercise and fitness rooms. Some truck stops even have walking trails, bicycle paths and recreational areas, but more can be done.

If you are a driver, think about how you can help improve your life by adopting a more health-conscious lifestyle. Thinking healthier is the first step to being healthier. Necessary action on your part helps better health become real.
