Description

Driving long hours and sitting for hours behind the wheel can cause a variety of health issues for truck drivers, such as poor blood circulation and bad posture. This can result in pain in the back, neck and musculoskeletal diseases. This booklet provides tips and exercises to stay fit on long trips. It describes simple exercises that will help you to stay fit and thus to prevent workrelated musculioskeletal dieseases (MSDs).

Stundenlanges, monotones Sitzen ist Gift für Ihre Muskeln und Gelenke – und vor allem für Ihren Rücken. Das gilt besonders, wenn Sie viel auf Achse sind. Dieser Leitfaden hilft Ihnen nicht nur, Unfälle und Erkrankungen zu vermeiden, sondern auch Ihr allgemeines Wohlbefinden und Ihre Arbeitszufriedenheit zu steigern.
