In direct support of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's mission, this cooperative agreement is between US Department of Transportation/Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)and the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA).
FMCSA and CCMTA will
develop a Fatigue Management Program (FMP).
The FMP would be applicable to all motor carriers, regardless of size, throughout North America.
The FMP would provide information regarding operator fatigue awareness and training; interventional countermeasures followed by an empirical assessment of the program efficacy; and strategies to implement the program industry-wide.
