Top 10 Driver Must-Knows About Fatigue Management
March 9, 2022

Presentation Slides

Fatigue Management Specialist Rodolfo Giacoman provided an
overview of the top 10 commercial motor vehicle driver must-knows covered in
the North American Fatigue Management Program:

1. Fatigue Is Lethal & Expensive
2. Driving Worsens Fatigue
3. Sleep Is Like Breathing
4. Relationships Affect Wellness
5. Wellness Is the Key to Alertness
6. Fatigue Susceptibility Varies
7. Alertness Has Supply & Demand
8. Fatigue Can Be Detected
9. Alertness Requires Strategies
10. Sound Scheduling Fosters Alertness

Driver education and training is the most important of the
five components of implementing a fatigue management program. For commercial
motor vehicle drivers, managing fatigue mainly means changing
behavior. Research suggests that behavior change involves (1) becoming
aware of the problem, (2) thinking about changing, (3) thinking becomes
planning, (4) taking action and (5) sustaining action. Therefore, the
first three steps to changing behavior require education and training.

To learn more about all five components of implementing a fatigue management program, watch the “Step-by-Step Guide for Implementing a Fatigue Management Program” webinar recording above.
