Managing driver fatigue in occupational settings
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
Fatigue is a major cause of road accidents. It has the potential to affect any driver, but is an increasing problem for professional drivers who must drive further than ever before to enable their employers to compete in an increasingly global 24/7 economy. Through delivery at organisational level, Fatigue Management Programmes (FMPs) could be more effective than mass media campaigns for tackling the problem of fatigue in professional and private drivers alike. The company is more able to target its employees using tailor-made measures, and it can more effectively monitor and manage fatigue outcomes. Systematic assessment of FMPs carried out to date is lacking, but is needed to evaluate their efficacy and, if appropriate, encourage the wider uptake and implementation of FMPs by relevant road transport companies in the EU.
