HVIA extends partnership with Healthy Heads

The HVIA and Healthy Heads partnership will spread mental health awareness in the lead-up to this year’s TruckShowX

The Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) has formalised an agreement to extend their partnership with Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds. 

The partnership will see the organisations continue to work together having previously partnered at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show. 

HVIA says the partnership provides its members access to specialised mental health resources which have been tailored for the heavy vehicle and logistics industries. 

“Healthy Heads has hit the ground running and is doing incredible work to create awareness, promote practical tips for the workplace and publish supportive, tailored materials for the industry,” HVIA CEO Todd Hacking says. 

“We know mental health is a challenge for every workplace and by formalising our partnership, we hope to be able to increase the accessibility for these valuable tools for HVIA members. 

“One of our first opportunities to showcase the partnership will be to shine a light on mental health during TruckShowX, which coincides with R U OK? in Trucks & Sheds Day on Tuesday 14 May 2024.” 

Healthy Heads CEO Naomi Frauenfelder says the Brisbane Truck Show provided an incredible opportunity for the organisation to reach transport industry members. 

“This partnership formalises an existing and very important relationship, and we thank HVIA members and the board for their support,” Frauenfelder says. 

“Through the partnership we can generate more awareness and further promote practical tips to ensure every HVIA work site has the resources and the skills to intervene and assist a friend, colleague or peer. 

“With the transport, postal and warehousing sector ranked 19 out of 19 for workplace mental health, we need all parts of industry to band together to address the challenges.  

“We thank HVIA for its leadership and foresight in working with and supporting Healthy Heads.”
