The transport, warehousing and logistics industries face unique challenges that can impact the mental health of these workforces. Long hours, isolation, and high-pressure environments contribute to heightened stress and mental health concerns. There is a pressing need for industry-specific mental health support and interventions to address these issues and promote a culture of wellbeing and safety.
In Superfriend’s 2023 Indicators of a Thriving Workplace report, the transport and logistics sector was determined to be the lowest ranked industry in Australia in terms of workplace mental health and wellbeing (19 out of 19), with a thriving index score considerably below the national average at 65 out of 100.
This need led to the establishment of Healthy Heads, to drive a meaningful change against these statistics.
