TORONTO, Ont. – The Canadian Trucking Alliance and Transport Canada have joining together to develop an information campaign on driver fatigue that will be launched this fall.
“Drivers have to be aware of the effects sleep restriction and circadian rhythms can have on their ability to carry out their duties,” said Canadian Trucking Alliance chief executive officer David Bradley. “The proposed new hours-of-service rule significantly increase opportunities for rest. A national information campaign will help drivers take advantage of them.”
The alliance distributed 2,000 fatigue-management booklets and audiotapes to truckers attending Truck World 2000.
Leading fatigue researcher Dr. Ron Heslegrave will provide technical support for the program.n
