Western Medical Assessments is excited to announce that we’re now an official associate supplier of the Alberta Motor Transport Association. The AMTA is the Alberta trucking industry’s unified voice committed to advocating on behalf of truckers to the provincial and federal governments.
AMTA’s mission involves establishing and promoting high safety and compliance standards and providing training for the motor transport industry to reduce injuries and improve the safety of workplaces. Trucking is a hazardous industry. Between traffic accidents, lifting injuries, and repetitive strain industries, truck drivers occasionally find themselves unable to drive for health reasons.
