Lenexa, KS, June 04, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Learn how fatigue management programs specialized for high-risk occupations can save lives, improve driver health, cut costs and boost recruitment and retention programs.
SleepSafe Drivers, one of the nation’s leaders in Fatigue Management Programs for the transportation industry and other high-risk related jobs, will discuss sleep apnea and answer industry specific questions related to OSA and fatigue management during a special webinar on June 8th. The North American Transportation Employee Relations Association (NATERA) have invited Steven Garrish, SVP of Business Development and Mary Convey, Director of Key Accounts & Risk Mitigation to present this educational content to its members and other key stakeholders.
According to a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration commissioned study, 28% of commercially-licensed drivers suffer from sleep apnea. Transportation Risk Managers, Safety Managers and HR Managers all grapple with the issues of understanding driver fatigue and how to best develop solutions that improve driver health and keep drivers on the road.
The upcoming webinar will provide information about sleep apnea in the transportation industry, the science behind sleep apnea, as well as information for successfully managing driver fatigue.
“With the regulatory process underway and the focus on sensationalist stories in the news, it is more important now than ever to educate and inform about fatigue, sleep dysfunction and the available solutions,” said Steven Garrish, SVP of Business Development at SleepSafe Drivers. “Improved safety and a better quality of life for those who work so hard to support and protect our nation’s supply chain should be an industry priority.”
