Fatigue Workshops

: The National Transit Institute will conduct a series of nine fatigue workshops to be held regionally throughout the United States. A primary goal of the workshops is to provide for the national rollout of a Fatigue Toolkit, developed under the FTA Transit Cooperative Research Program. Fatigue is a major issue in the transportation industry. In 1995, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) identified fatigue as a primary cause of a New York City Transit fatal accident on the Williamsburg Bridge. As a result, the NTSB recommended and Congress directed the FTA to conduct a continuing training program in fatigue awareness for transit operators. In addition, the Department of Transportation Human Factors Coordinating Committee is focused on the subject of fatigue. The fatigue toolkit is available on the Internet as TCRP Report 81: Toolbox for Transit Operator Fatigue at URL [http://www4.trb.org/trb/onlinepubs.nsf/web/crp].
