Prevent fatigue-related crashes

June 1, 2023

This month’s road safety goal is to prevent fatigue-related crashes. Choose 1 or more of the following activities to help you reach that goal.


  • Review our Driver Fatigue Tool Kit
  • Hold a tailgate meeting to discuss the risks of driving while fatigued, contributing factors to fatigue, and what drivers can do to avoid driving while impaired by fatigue.
  • Train drivers how to adjust seats, head restraints, foot position, and mirrors before they start on their trip.
  • Establish open lines of communication so that employees are willing to raise fatigue-related issues with supervisors or managers.



  • Educate managers, supervisors, and drivers about the signs of fatigue.
  • Watch our Re-thinking Fatigue Risk and Driving webinar



  • Develop a fatigue management policy and program or review your existing ones.
  • Use journey management and trip planning to help reduce the risk of a fatigued driver getting behind the wheel.
  • Make effective communication a key part of implementing that policy.
