12 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation -12 History and reasons for Hours of Service legislation How the human body clock affects fatigue How to identify driver fatigue How to avoid sleep debt What will I learn in this module? © Microsoft®

13 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation -13 Rules that commercial vehicle drivers follow in Canada Maximum allowable driving times and minimum required off-duty times Until recently, rules were not based on sleep and fatigue research Why do we need Hours of Service legislation?

14 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation $6 million study Driving long hours, day after day, results in serious fatigue caused by sleep debt Fatigue leads to commercial vehicle collisions Fatigue and Alertness Study

15 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation -15 Need adequate sleep to combat fatigue Need to change Hours of Service regulations to allow opportunities for additional sleep 10 years of consultations to make changes to regulations What is fatigue? © Microsoft®

16 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation -16 Caused by work, exertion or stress for long periods of time People contribute to their fatigue by simply being awake People become tired and drowsy Increased chance of microsleep What is fatigue? © Microsoft®

17 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation -17 Body clock tells body processes when to have peaks & low points Example: Midnight to dawn, clock tells body to lower body temperature, slow heart rate, lower blood pressure Body makes these changes whether we are asleep or awake! How does the human body clock affect fatigue?

18 Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service HoS Presentation -18 Disrupting the clock can lead to a lack of sleep and increase in fatigue Low points = increase in fatigue-related accidents How does the human body clock affect fatigue? © Microsoft®
