Shift working driver fatigue programme – a pilot programme to raise awareness and motivate change among employees and employers
Submission Date: 2019
The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is developing a driver fatigue programme to educate and gather the information needed to help prevent shift worker fatigue-related car crashes. Employers will get a baseline level of self-reported fatigue from employees before starting and finishing a shift, and how fatigued they are before driving home. Employees will get served education tips before work and when driving home. There is also a suite of products, resources and tools available to help reduce instances of driver fatigue and begin a culture of awareness and action around fatigued driving in workplaces.
