On average, commercial drivers spend 300+ days annually on the road.

The extended time spent on the road by commercial drivers can significantly impact their physical and mental well-being, including crucial factors such as:

Energy levels
Blood pressure
Blood glucose

Various wellness programs have been implemented to enhance the health of commercial drivers, however what sets the Shayela Program apart is:

  • A data first approach.
  • Integrated health data with other key-data points (criminality, driving behavior, compliance, optometry, audiology) to develop a complete view of the driver’s health on their overall driving performance.
  • Identification of any potential risks and areas of concern that could result in poor driving.
