Help drive better health for truckies

Driving Health Team, Monash University

Help us improve the health & wellbeing of truck drivers with a new program from the Driving Health Team at Monash University.
The Driving Health Allocator Training Program (DHAT) has been created by the Driving Health team at Monash University. It is targeted towards allocators, supervisors and line managers of truck drivers.
The overarching goal of DHAT is to increase awareness and understanding among allocators, line managers and supervisors about the factors they can impact or control in order to support and improve the health and wellbeing of drivers in their company.
How it works:
  • Begin the program on the Driving Health website -
  • The online program is free, confidential and only takes 20 minutes to complete
  • You'll first be shown a short introductory video outlining the DHAT Program and will then be asked afew questions about yourself and your work in the trucking industry as well as the health and wellbeing of truck drivers
  • You will be shown a short training video about a truck driver struggling with his wellbeing
  • Finally, you'll be asked a series of questions about the factors impacting truck driver health
  • Upon completion of the program we provide downloadable resources
