Yes, it is important for HGV drivers to maintain good health and fitness. The nature of their job requires long hours of sitting and driving, which can lead to health issues such as obesity, back pain, and cardiovascular disease. It is important for HGV drivers to prioritise their health through regular exercise, healthy eating habits, and regular check-ups with their doctor and meet legal requirements with a D4 medical exam.
