Trucking research institute launches fatigue management website
Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute, the research arm of the American Trucking Associations, has launched a website on commercial motor vehicle operator fatigue management.
The North American Fatigue Management Program website provides access to information on helping to treat and prevent driver fatigue and its contributing factors, including sleep disorders and driver work schedules. The resources were developed over a span of 10 years by ATRI with support from NAFMP partners, which include the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and multiple Canadian government safety agencies.
The website also features a return-on-investment calculator and accompanying user guide that CMV carriers can use to determine the cost-benefit ratio of implementing the program’s suggested fatigue management system.
