Truck Driver Wellness
Truck drivers travelling on the N3 Toll Route are given the opportunity on a quarterly basis to address health and wellness issues facing the industry.
Tests offered at the Truck Driver Wellness Day are voluntary, and include the following:
· Blood Pressure
· Malaria screening
· TB screening
· Audio tests
· Eye tests
· Nutritional information
· Physiotherapy and exercise information.
One of the major contributing factors to accidents is truck driver fitness. In general, truck drivers have demanding schedules and are not always able to visit healthcare centres provided by their employers.
The Truck Driver Wellness Days are be held at various intervals along the N3 Toll Route, and Tolcon provides drivers with water bottles, snacks and safety tips for travelling on the toll road.
