As trucking regulations become more focused on medical issues such as sleep apnea and the body mass index (BMI), truck drivers are now needing to pay better attention to their heath.
Regardless of the lifestyle that truckers face, better health can be accomplished but both professional driver and motor carrier must play a responsible role.
Special guest, Jeff Clark has been in trucking for 30 years and is a member of the Driver Health Council with the Trucking Solutions Group. Having faced his own health problems while driving over the road, he is now an avid runner, completing eight marathons and believes that the truck driver health issues in the industry can be solved with drivers and motor carriers working together.
He has been featured in Road King, Truckers News, Challenge, Landline, and Runner’s World magazines and currently writes a monthly health column for Truckers News Magazine.
We will take a look at the importance of truck driver health and what you can do to protect your CDL over impending truck driver health regulations.
It's good to talk.
