The ageing workforce and the increasing rates of chronic diseases in the transport and storage industry make retention of workers one of the biggest issues facing businesses.

Many chronic diseases can be prevented or minimised by addressing the work organisation and work environment.

This session will discuss what can be done in transport, providing an overview of  a practical work health and wellbeing toolkit and ideas of how workplaces and workers can create a healthy workplace to reduce chronic disease risks.
