Sleep Hygiene - North American Fatigue Management Program Driver Series
Good and sufficient sleep is arguably the most important factor in determining drivers’ general health and state of alertness. In this session, learn why sleep is so important, what “good” and “sufficient” sleep looks like, and how sleep hygiene can help drivers get the sleep needed to stay alert and healthy.

Featured speaker: Tom DiSalvi, vice chairman of the National Sleep Foundation Board of Directors, and Schneider National's vice president of safety, driver training and compliance.

Sleep hygiene includes knowing:

• When and for how long to sleep
• Whether naps are beneficiary and, if so, for how long
• How to take advantage of light and darkness for better sleep
• When to exercise and the types that help sleep
• How food and drinks may interfere with sleep
• What are the effects on sleep of caffeine, nicotine and alcohol
• What do sleeping aids do and what other medications affect alertness
• What are the optimal environmental conditions for sleep
• How a bedtime routine may help fall asleep
• What to do when you cannot sleep
