This Live Learning webinar provides 1 CE credit toward the Truckload Academy Human Resources (HR-RR) or Retention (RET-IDR or RET-EE) Certificate.


The direct and indirect costs of professional drivers being in poor health and exhibiting lifestyle risks are real concerns that must be addressed within our industry. Alarmingly, carriers are seeing their drivers either issued temporary DOT cards, having restrictions placed on their cards, or being denied all together because of their DOT physicals. This webinar will examine the impact of poor health on recruiting and retention, in addition to workers compensation and health insurance costs. You will also explore liability risks, driver-fatigue-related incidents, and the impact of poor driver health on productivity and overall profitability. You will hear, firsthand, creative strategies that have been successful from the wellness director of a fast-growing motor carrier and discover best practices for mitigating the risk of poor driver health to protect your bottom line.  

After attending this Live Learning webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain the actual costs of poor driver health
  • Identify best practices for implementing driver health improvement plans and wellness programs that work
  • Establish techniques within your own company to get your drivers on the road to better health
