Bp has entered into a three-year sponsorship agreement with Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds (HHTS) to help improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes in the road transport, warehousing, and logistics industries in Australia.

The partnership will give HHTS access to bp’s existing truck stop network – one of the largest in the country – to connect with Australian truck drivers.

It will allow HHTS to leverage bp’s network and deliver on-site programmes to reach truck drivers and Australians working in the trucking industry who might not otherwise have access to support.

Frédéric Baudry, President, bp Australia and SVP fuels and low carbon solutions, Asia Pacific, said the partnership is underpinned by bp’s global aim to enhance the wellbeing of employees, contractors, and local communities.

“Transport workers play an essential role in our operations and are vital to Australia’s supply chains, and we’re incredibly proud to be supporting the mental health and physical wellbeing of these hard-working individuals at our truck stops and travel centres.

“Bp’s global sustainability frame includes an aim to enhance the wellbeing of employees, contractors and local communities. We believe innovative ‎programmes and partnerships such as this are extremely important in ensuring Australia’s valued truck drivers, many of whom are also our customers and logistics partners, can access critical health support and services while on the road so they can continue to keep our nation moving.”

Naomi Frauenfelder, CEO, HHTS, is delighted to welcome bp on board as a Foundational Sponsor.

“Their contribution to the Foundation allows us to accelerate key projects and provides us with the opportunity to reach drivers while they’re out on the road, providing access to tools and support.”
