)-- At the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) Annual Convention, Steven Garrish will discuss how fatigue management programs specialized for high-risk occupations can save lives, improve driver health, cut costs and boost recruitment and retention programs.
Steven Garrish, SVP of Safety and Regulatory Compliance at SleepSafe Drivers, one of the nation’s leaders in Fatigue Management Programs (FMPs) for the transportation industry and other high-risk related jobs, will discuss the importance of these programs and offer practical ways to implement a fatigue management program on March 26th and March 27. TCA has invited Steven Garrish to present the details behind the North American Fatigue Management Program (NAFMP), widely considered the premier blueprint for a comprehensive FMP to its members and other key stakeholders at its Annual Convention.
Transportation executives, Safety Managers and HR Managers all grapple with the issues of understanding driver fatigue and finding solutions that improve driver health and keep drivers on the road!
The upcoming sessions will provide information about the different aspects that go into developing a successful program, the special considerations for the transportation industry, the science behind sleep dysfunction, as well as common misinformation and myths that are circulating in the industry.
“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 practical solutions available,” said Steven Garrish. “Commitment to improved safety and a better quality of life for those who work so hard to support and protect our nation’s supply chain should not just be a stated priority, but should be a value demonstrated by top leadership at every company.”
