What started as research into oil and gas industry fatalities specifically, Kyla Hagan-Haynes discovered so many of these fatalities were due to driver fatigue crashes, which are fully preventable when we understand the effects and impacts of fatigue on the safety of fleet drivers and take actions to mitigate this driver risk. With more than 20 years experience in public health and 12 years in the space of occupational motor vehicle safety space, Kyla's passion is now applying both her analysis and the oil and gas industry best practices across other industries that could also benefit from driver fatigue management.Resources from this episode: Managing fatigue for the fleet safety professional guide by the Network of Employers for Traffic SafetyInternational Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) fatigue management document
