SINGAPORE: Singapore’s 13,000 taxi drivers will soon be able to benefit from the Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) Workplace Health Programmes.
This will enable these drivers to access and benefit from workplace health initiatives such as regular health screening and follow—up with GPs, workshops on tips to improve their health, dedicated health corners and the distribution of stretch bands and user—friendly exercise guides.
They will also be provided with specially developed notebooks which will contain simple health tips designed for their use.
This will be the result of the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the HPB and the National Taxi Association.
HPB expects its Workplace Health Initiatives to reach some 1,200 taxi drivers every day. And to assess the effectiveness of the initiatives and solicit feedback with a view to improving them, some 2,000 taxi drivers will be surveyed on a yearly basis by the HPB.
