What is fatigue, how does it add to the risk of being involved in a collision and how do we manage it?The facts are both surprising and disturbing.
Fatigue has proven to be difficult to measure but its impact on a person’s ability to drive safely has been the subject of a number of studies with concerning results.
The presentation will focus on the impact of fatigue on all aspects of the transport task, from the steering wheel to the board room.
The most general factors that cause fatigue are lack of sleep, bad quality sleep and sleep demands induced by the internal body clock. Besides these general factors, prolonged driving (time-on-task) can increase driver fatigue, especially when drivers do not take sufficient breaks.
