Since 1997, Healthy Trucking Association of America (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.
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
- Heart Disease
- Smoking related illness
- and other major health conditions is twice as high among truckers as the normal working population.
HTAA is the driving force behind the nationwide healthy trucking movement.
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 focuses its efforts to reach established goals to reflect this increasing attention and awareness of trucking health.
HTAA is the health and wellness authority of the trucking industry. We are the first national organization ever formed for the purpose of addressing the lack of good health among the nation’s professional driver population.
We can integrate specific diseases and conditions information for awareness campaigns, free screenings and solution care models for the transportation industries.
