Building a healthy lifestyle can be hard work - especially for commercial truck drivers. Statistics reveal that truck drivers:
- Are considered among the least healthy occupation groups in the U.S.
- Have lower-than-average life expectancy
- Have an increased likelihood of chronic conditions (i.e. high blood pressure)
- Tend to make unhealthy lifestyle choices (i.e. smoking, poor meals)
These challenges can lead to increased healthcare costs and more complex workers' compensation claims for employers. Additionally, drivers must be able to pass a DOT physical to keep their CDL which is becoming ever more important as the driver shortage continues.
