Preventing and Managing Fatigue… for CMV Drivers



This interactive course on Preventing and Managing Fatigue… for CMV Drivers discusses how you can manage fatigue when you’re on the road… as well as “sleep strategies” that you can use both on the road and at home to make sure you are getting enough good quality sleep. Problem-solving, quick decision-making and good judgement are all skills that CMV drivers need to drive safely. And if you’re not getting enough sleep over an extended period of time, you can become “fatigued”… which can degrade these skills and increase the chances of having an accident when you’re behind the wheel. But there are things that you can do to help you get the sleep that you need to be awake and alert when you’re on the road. Areas covered in the course include on the road sleep strategies, managing your fatigue on the road, at home sleep strategies, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained.
