Early this year, Tata Motors Finance, a leading Non-Banking Financial Company, and a pioneer in the vehicle financing industry, launched the ‘Project Suraksha’ pledging to provide free health check-ups for truckers nationwide. Health camps were set up in collaboration with Collective Good Foundation (CGF), Samhita, a healthcare solution provider, in 15 cities of Ambala, Anuppur, Bhojpur, Guwahati, Gwalior, Hyderabad, Lakhimpur, Lucknow, Mumbai, Muzzafarpur, Namakkal, Patna, Pune, Visakhapatnam and Vijaywada, with on-the-spot registration. The health screening program was recently concluded, covering over 5000 truckers Pan India.
Truck drivers are at greater health risk due to the nature of the working conditions. The majority of truck drivers in India have back pain, hypertension, diabetes and eye-related issues. According to a recent study conducted for SaveLIFE Foundation by Marketing and Development Research Associates (MDRA), Backache (77 per cent), Joint/ Muscle/ Neck pain (58 per cent) and Constipation/ gas/ stomach problems (40 per cent) are the top three health problems among Indian truck drivers. Furthermore, 35.5 percent of drivers suffer from headaches and dizziness as a result of a lack of sleep and rest, and 28 per cent have visual problems. Around 24 per cent of drivers suffer from stress or hypertension. Despite the need, 81 per cent of truck drivers in India do not have access to any medical facilities along the roadways.
