Groups to collaborate on driver health initiatives

Oakstone Publishing and the Healthy Trucking Assn. of America (HTAA) have reached agreement to collaborate on a variety of projects designed to give HTAA members access to Oakstone’s educational resources.

Oakstone is a provider of multimedia education for healthcare professionals as well as corporate health and wellness resources.

“HTAA is focused on being a change agent in the wellness of the millions of drivers operating commercial vehicles,” said Bill Gordon, HTAA’s executive director. “We are very pleased to have a company of Oakstone's caliber on board as a major partner. Our alliance with Oakstone will have a significant ability to positively impact the health and well-being of truckers.”

Oakstone offers several learning solutions that support the health and wellness of commercial motor vehicle drivers, including:

  • Personal Best. These tools offer complete customization and private label capabilities that reinforce brand recognition and drive wellness program engagement, as well as address a full range of topics – health and wellness, safety, productivity, shift work, and personal money management. Studies indicate that investing in wellness programs, such as those offered by Personal Best, shows a return on investment between $1.49 and $13 per dollar spent.
  • NRCME Plus Online Training System. A 100% online course that meets the US Department of Transportation's training prerequisite for healthcare providers to take the federal exam and become certified to perform DOT driver physical exams.

“Our success as a wellness industry leader is aimed at enhancing employees' performance and productivity while promoting workplace health and safety,” said Diane Munson, Oakstone’s president and CEO. “We are excited to be affiliated with a nonprofit association such as HTAA with such a vital mission as it seeks to help professional drivers attain and maintain their health.”
