Healthy Trucking Association of America (HTAA)
Helping Drivers Arrive Home Safer, Healthier and Happier
Since 1997, HTAA has made its sole aim that of striving to improve the health and wellness of truck drivers, both independent owner/operators and fleet drivers. HTAA saw the prevalence of bad health in the trucking industry before it became acknowledged as an industry-wide issue of great significance. The trucking industry overall is the unhealthiest occupational category in this country. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Agency, the prevalence of conditions such as obesity, heart disease, smoking related illness and other major health conditions is twice as high among truckers as the normal working population. The most predominant disease conditions are identified on our website under the section on Health and Wellness. As the medical community and the trucking industry began to heighten awareness of trucking health issues, HTAA refocused its efforts to reach established goals to reflect this increasing attention and awareness of trucking health.
With the popularity of our health and wellness initiatives, we have formed a foundation to reach other transportation sectors. We would like to encourage you to visit our foundation page
