Driving Better Health

PROJECT FRAMEWORK - Driving Better Health

Increase driver health awareness

Addressing driver health produces many benefits such as improved safety performance, increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and worker retention. Educating drivers on positive behaviours for their health and the link to chronic illness contributes to behavioural change.

Provide driver health assessments

Implementing health and wellness strategies that focus on improving health risks will lead to increased productivity and better workplace health and safety performance.



Promote the ability to replicate the project delivery model

Similar health assessments able to be delivered across other states and jurisdictions and sharing the project outcomes will further highlight the need for programs to address this critical issue in the transport industry.

The Heart Health Convoy will visit 12 locations and provide up to 400 health assessments. The project relies on a mobile clinic providing health assessments, which will address key conditions including:

    • Nutrition
    • Movement and Fitness
    • Psychological Health
    • Sleep
    • Alcohol and Smoking
    • Social Health
    • Blood pressure
    • Body composition
    • Respiratory function
    • Metabolic risks (diabetes, liver function, lipid profile and kidney function)

For more information or to get involved, please contact Lisa Fraser, lisa@qta.com.au
