Transport Canada Hosts Fatigue Management Conference

Posted on September 21, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

OTTAWA, ONT. — Transport Canada, the Canadian government’s transportation department, sponsored the International Conference on Fatigue Management in Transportation Operations. The event in Seattle earlier this month was co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. It featured internationally renowned speakers and panelists from the transportation sector, industry, university research centers and government agencies worldwide. Transportation experts from 13 countries gathered to exchange information on the latest fatigue management research, technologies and countermeasures.

The fatigue in transportation conference is the continuation of a series of conferences that have taken place in Fremantle, Australia, since 1994, under the auspices of Murdoch University. Nearly 100 scientific papers served as the basis of discussion of various topics such as fatigue in transportation; fatigue indicators and monitoring devices; the impact of fatigue on performance, scheduling, sleep disorders screening and treatment; fatigue management programs, and countermeasures, education, training and evaluation.

In addition to co-hosting the conference, Transport Canada is committed to conducting research and development on an ongoing basis to examine fatigue in all modes of transportation, the agency said. The objective is to continuously enhance fatigue management tools and practices.
