Health in Gear podcast promotes ways to stay connected and well on the road.

The OzHelp Foundation has today launched Health in Gear’s first podcast mini-series, Share the Load. Hosted by OzHelp Wellbeing Support Officer, Frank Arsego, the podcast shares stories from Australian truck drivers and the driving community. The series aims to promote connection, discuss key industry issues and challenges, and inspire ideas from drivers, for drivers, on ways to feel healthier and happier while on the road.

Available on popular podcasting platforms including Spotify and Apple Podcasts, the series reveals stories from well-known Australian truck drivers including Glenn “Yogi” Kendall, Tony “Tones” Fulton and Lyndal Denny.

OzHelp Chief Executive Officer, Darren Black commented “The podcast series aims to reach a wider audience within the truck driving community, whilst being able to share some great tips, advice and research on ways we can support truck driver’s health and wellbeing.”

“The podcast series will add to the many resources drivers can access through Health in Gear while they are on the road. These resources include health tips and tools, phone support and Truckie Tune Up health checks which are piloting across Queensland and New South Wales over the coming months.”
