Driver fatigue is a contributing factor in almost 20% of all fatal accidents, as well as 20% of all non-fatal accidents. Professional, commercial and shift work drivers are most at risk of being involved in collision due to driver fatigue. 

Tired managers and employees cost companies lots of money and put themselves and others in danger. If you drive while drowsy, you put yourself, passengers, and others at risk. Fatigue slows reaction time, decreases awareness, impairs judgment, and is a major factor behind on-the-job accidents, absenteeism and low productivity. 

This course is specifically designed to assist organizational leaders to understand fatigue, learn how it effects their employees, and evaluate their own organization for fatigue dangers. While the major focus of this course is driving, this course can be an effective fatigue informational tool for all senior managers.
