This safety video program on Fatigue and Its Effects for CMV Drivers discusses the factors that contribute to fatigue, the dangers of driving while you're fatigued, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Hour of Service regulations that address these issues.
Problem-solving, quick decision-making and good judgement are all skills that CMV drivers need to drive safely. But if you're not getting a healthy amount of sleep, it can seriously impair these abilities. In fact, being awake for 24 hours straight can affect your driving as much as if you were legally drunk. And if you don't get enough sleep over an extended period of time, you can become fatigued, which can increase the chances of having an accident when you're behind the wheel even more.
Areas covered in the safety video program include:
- the basics of fatigue,
- types of fatigue and sleep disorders,
- the FMCSA Hours of Service regulation, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
- 49 CFR 392 Chapter 6 - 6.3.1 Illness or Fatigue (392.3)
