drivingDue to an unhealthy lifestyle and lack of good nutritional options while traveling, truck drivers are categorically one of the unhealthiest populations in our country. That’s why the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires that all new CMV drivers learn about driver wellness. With over 7 million truck drivers on our roads, it is imperative that your drivers understand that both job duties and lifestyle hazards can present factors for lowering their wellness. Summit’s new online program, DOT: Driver Wellness, presents you and your workers with valuable insight on how to increase their wellness when on the road. This course covers:

  • Introduction to Driver Wellness
  • Risks and their impact
  • Preventative Actions

This program is the final part to our online DOT series that also include: Driver Logs, Driver Qualifications, and Pre & Post Trip Inspections. Summit’s robust online training and recordkeeping system, Summit Trainingweb®, will consistently and effortlessly train your employees on why it is imperative to stay healthy on the road. Available 24/7 from any location with a web browser, Summit’s engaging, technically accurate interactive online training courses ensure your employees and supervisors understand the details of this important DOT topic.
