Driving whilst tired is high risk and fatigue is a factor in a large number of crashes. Fatigue, like other impairments such as alcohol and drugs, affects driving. However, whilst drug and alcohol impairment can be measured to identify risk, measuring fatigue is difficult.
Fatigue is particularly dangerous because it can affect anyone, regardless of how experienced a driver they are. At-work drivers can be particularly at risk, especially if they spend long hours driving, drive at night, or have irregular sleep schedules.
This seminar has been created to increase awareness of the effects of driving while tired, how techniques and technology can help reduce the risks associated with driving tired and how to more effectively manage risk within commercial transport and logistics fleets.
