Improving the health of taxi drivers

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn recently met taxi driver Hafeas Rehman to congratulate him on the important work he is doing to help Sheffield taxi drivers become more active and healthy. For his efforts he was runner up for a national award, and is currently shortlisted for a Sheffield Chamber of Commerce award.

 

Hafeas is the chair of the city’s Taxi Trade Association and has been publicising the dangers of those health issues that arise within the taxi driving community. There is a big risk of obesity for taxi drivers, and they suffer from joint problems at a significantly higher rate than other professions.  The temptations to snack on junk food, smoke and slouch in their cabs is high. 

 

Hafeas set up a campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of the situation amongst the taxi drivers. He arranged a number of activities, such as swimming and tennis, and has arranged a physiotherapy session. 

 

Meg said:

 

 “I was pleased to congratulate Hafeas Rehman on the work he has done. Taxi drivers have a sedentary lifestyle, and providing the incentives to get them active will improve their health for years to come.”
