Welcome to SHIFT

Helping truck drivers live long and healthy lives!

What is SHIFT? 

SHIFT stands for "Safety and Health Involvement For Truck drivers". It is a weight and health promotion program tailored for drivers and is proven to work.

SHIFT supports drivers' success with a group weight loss competition that includes weekly behavior and body weight logging, online training, and health coaching. SHIFT, developed with an understanding of the demands of commercial driving, incorporates sleep, eating, and exercise elements to advance driver safety, health, and well-being.

Watch Dr. Olson describe his research and the SHIFT program in this short 2 minute video.
