Bus Captain Project
In collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MOH), Health Promotion Board (HPB), National Transport Workers' Union, SBS Transit and SMRT Buses, IGA is privileged to be part of the pilot Workplace Health Programme for Bus Captains, launched on 31 July 2015 jointly by then Senior Minister of State for Health and Manpower Dr Amy Khor, and Senior Minister of State for Finance and Transport Mrs Josephine Teo.
Specially tailored for the bus captains, this programme brings healthcare to their doorstep so that this group of mature workers can better manage their health.
Bus captains undergo health and vision screenings, in addition to attending monthly health coaching sessions held at the bus interchanges. Various clinical specialties are assembled to provide domain expertise and guidance for health sessions, with topics ranging from chronic disease management and smoking cessation, nutrition and physical activity, stress management and sleep, to driving ergonomics.
