Journey Management Training
Fatigue is a factor in 20-30% of all road deaths, which is comparable to deaths related to speeding and alcohol. Any workforce that works extended hours or night shifts and travels greater than 20 minutes one-way to or from work are at increased risk of a fatigue incident.
Journey Management Plans (JMP) are a documented process a worker can follow for planning and undertaking road journeys with a goal of arriving safely. Each participant will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of travel-related hazards that increase the risk of fatigue and controls to mitigate the risk of an accident relating to fatigue, as well as, a completed JMP specific to their own circumstances.
