Join us to find out more about the SHIFT project with a presentation from Dr Veronica Varela Mato, Research Associate/project manager SHIFT Study. The presentation will include the study’s inception and evolution with interactive elements and exercises. In addition to the presentation, there is the opportunity to discuss the SHIFT project and associated health issues that Lorry Drivers experience whilst also exploring some of the following fascinating and thought provoking questions:
How can the sector support SHIFT or any health strategy to ultimately support lorry drivers in achieving a healthy lifestyle?
Why is this occupational group so heavily male dominated and what barriers are faced by women to get involved?
What health-related changes are necessary within the sector to encourage more women to become a lorry driver?
Refreshments will be provided.
