With many drivers considered essential during the pandemic and possibly working longer hours to keep up with demand, J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. has developed a new online training course, Fatigued Driving Prevention, to help companies address this critical problem.

Applicable to commercial motor vehicle drivers as well as route/delivery drivers, salespeople, and anyone else who regularly drives during the course of their work, the online course will help drivers understand the importance of prioritizing sufficient restorative sleep for their health.

“It’s imperative that all drivers remain awake and alert on the road,” said Mark Schedler, senior editor of transportation management at J.J. Keller. “Giving your drivers concrete strategies they can use to prevent fatigue could very well save lives.”

After completing the course, drivers will be able to:

  • Explain the causes and effects of fatigue
  • Describe the causes of poor sleep and benefits of getting proper sleep
  • Discuss strategies they can use to avoid driver fatigue
