Are You Managing Driver Fatigue Risk as Part of Your COVID-19 Emergency Operational Plan?

On 13 March 2020 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued a national emergency declaration to provide hours-of-service (HOS) regulatory relief to commercial motor vehicle operators. 

These historic regulatory measures are aimed to help the nation fight back against the COVID-19 outbreak. But they also may increase risk in your operation as HOS regulations normally provide a minimum standard to protect against driver fatigue risk. We have observed a 32% increase in driver fatigue alerts in our monitored fleets since the HOS exemption went into effect on March 13th. 

In the absence of HOS limits, Trucking Fatigue Meter™ provides a way to monitor for and mitigate dangerous situations where drivers may become fatigued beyond the point where they can reliably and safely operate their trucks. 

In these extraordinary times, drivers are under intense pressure to keep America’s economy going. Trucking Fatigue Meter is an essential part of your COVID-19 operational plan to keep drivers safe. With Trucking Fatigue Meter, you can track of your drivers’ fatigue levels in real time and identify when mitigations are needed. 

Call today to find out how quick and easy it is to get started. Trucking Fatigue Meter integrates with over 90% of ELD providers. Usually monitoring can begin fleet wide the same day that you sign-up.
