Reducing the Risks of Driver Fatigue

28 November 2023 Webinar

Fatigue affects all businesses – especially those who have workers who drive, full time or part time. Fatigue is considered a form of impairment because it affects driver functionality and decision-making in ways similar to alcohol and drugs. Poor reaction times, risk taking, missing important cues, or even falling asleep at the wheel – the consequences could be fatal.

In this Reducing the Risks of Driver Fatigue webinar , international consultant and speaker on fatigue management and workplace stress, Susan Sawatzky, will share her expert views on:

  • How fatigue impacts driver safety and health
  • The science behind fatigue
  • The ways organizations can manage fatigue
  • Things drivers can do to better manage fatigue
