Centurion has come on board to join a national health and safety initiative to assist the road freight sector.
Steering Healthy Minds is an initiative of the Transport Workers Union, the Transport Education Audit Compliance Health Organisation, Kitney, WorkCover Queensland, EML, and TWUSUPER.
Although it was originally established in Queensland, it has now expanded nationally.
In the coming months, Centurion will be training Mental Health First Aiders to learn how to assist people who are developing or experiencing a mental health problem until the person can be seen by an appropriately trained mental health professional.
“Steering Healthy Minds is driven by the industry, for the industry and led by the industry and Centurion will use its growing national presence to advocate the program throughout the industry,” a Centurion spokesperson said.
“Through it, we will be placing as much importance on the mental health of our people as we are on their physical health.”
