During the health crisis, especially during the first confinement, the usefulness of many professions appeared in the headlines. Like that of transport and logistics, essential for the supply of basic necessities. The general public has also discovered that the profession is not without risk. Drivers and handlers are particularly exposed to MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders). This is why the Carcept Preva Foundation awards annual awards to companies that help improve working conditions in this sector.
This year, 7 companies received an award, along with a financial contribution to their development. Two prize categories: occupational health transport and express innovation. For information, the Carcept Preva foundation was created by the eponymous company. A company offering social protection products to the entire transport and logistics chain. Focus on the 7 winners, these companies that improve the lives of professionals in the sector.
The category “Transport and health at work”
