Cleveland, Ohio (PressExposure) November 27, 2006 -- CLEVELAND, OH - Mobile Awarenessâ¢, a provider of leading-edge transportation safety products, today announced an agreement to supply products from Occupational Athletics Health and Safety Systems.
Based in Harrisburg, PA, Occupational Athleticsâ¢ designs human maintenance systems to help ease the health-care crisis of American workers. Unlike traditional wellness programs, Occupational Athletics Health and Safety Systems' products provide an interactive, day-by-day, step-by-step, entertaining yet educational road-map for transportation professionals to steer their way to a healthier lifestyle and increased safety, on and off the road. The systems are driven by the idea that we can all be athletes in life...just as professional athletes must develop specific skills in order to "play" at their best, so do professional truck and bus drivers.
"The Systems are all about enhancing the well-being of individuals and employees that spend a great deal of time driving a motor vehicle. Their proactive focus on prevention and wellness is a revolutionary approach to reducing employee injuries, illnesses and vehicle accidents in the transportation industry." says Gary Rothstein, president of Mobile Awareness.
The Road and Bus Athlete Interactive Health and Safety Systems consist of Gamebooks with daily health and safety tips, goals, and "motor"vators and include 2 CD's with a round-table discussion of health and safety issues, stretch card, quarterly survey cards and nutrition guide in the back. Optional training materials and implementation/incentive ideas are also available. Both the Road and Bus Athlete Systems are designed to help drivers make lifestyle changes, prevent absenteeism and driver turnover, leading to improvements in driver morale and company productivity. From the "kickoff" to the "final goal" scored, drivers will become winners in the "game of life".
"Our customers are looking for ways to reduce expenditures, boost driver retention and manage continuously increasing health care costs. Occupational Athletics gives us a practical and affordable solution our customers can utilize to run a truly successful safety and wellness program." adds Rothstein.
Occupational Athletics Health and Safety Systems' products have been nationally endorsed by the North American Transportation Management Institute (NATMI) and the Commercial Vehicle Training Association (CVTA).
