National Occupational Standard Toolkit
The work of a commercial vehicle operator (truck driver) can be varied. Many of these individuals will require job-specific knowledge, skills and abilities that apply to specific workplaces, industries and commodities.
This National Occupational Standard clearly defines the core knowledge, skills and abilities that are shared by the widest-possible array of commercial vehicle operators (truck drivers) and typically developed early in a career.
Access the National Occupational Standard toolkit here.
Physical Demands Assessments
Physical Demands Assessments (PDAs) identify the physical job requirements for specific occupations. Once employers are aware of the physical requirements of the job, current employees and new hires can be assessed to determine if they can perform the physical duties. If required, potential accommodations can be put in place to allow workers from various under-represented groups to not only perform, but thrive, in their roles – a mutually beneficial outcome for both workers and employers.
