Toolkit- Addressing Driver Fatigue

Why is driver fatigue such a concern for the trucking industry? Nearly 4,000 people are killed in large truck crashes each year in the US, and driver fatigue is a leading factor. In this Kentucky FACE Toolkit, you will find a narrative video as well as a report which details an investigation of a semi truck driver who was killed after he fell asleep behind the wheel. This report and accompanying video will contain safety recommendations that, when followed, can help prevent future incidents involving driver fatigue.
