Matt Stone Racing in conjunction with team partner NTI are very proud to be supporting Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds, promoting this valuable initiative with some media exposure at this weekend’s Beaurepaires Tasmania SuperSprint at Symmons Plains.
Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds Foundation exists to promote prevention and understanding of mental health issues that exist across the road transport and logistics industries in Australia.
We understand the pressures of being away, of being an essential worker, especially in these COVID times, and how important it is that everyone knows that help is nearby for those who may be struggling.
Mental health is a significant issue for the Australian road transport, warehousing, and logistics industries. Risk factors such as long hours, workplace isolation, pressure to meet delivery schedules and the need for continual alertness while operating heavy machinery all contribute to making those in the industry extremely vulnerable to mental health issues.
MSR are passionate about the health and support of all persons and have a special connection to the transport industry as we too travel the country racing in the Supercars Championship.
