This course explains the signs of fatigue to watch out for, counting work hours’ time and the amount of rest time per hours worked, with examples of how to calculate work and rest time. The training discusses work time as not just time behind the wheel, but all activities that are undertaken including loading and unloading, cleaning and refuelling and recording information. The course includes information on accurate record keeping.
