Host Drivers,

In one of our recent quarterly training meetings, we talked about the importance of proper rest, and the way our body clocks work on a sleep cycle.  Nap for 20 minutes or less for a power nap, or plan naps and sleep in increments of 1.5 Hours.  This article out of West Virginia found in the link below is a reminder of not only the dangers of not getting proper rest.  It is also a black eye to not only the bus company, but to the motor coach industry as a whole.  Don’t let this be you!!!

Please keep in mind, getting proper rest is the most important safety practice you will develop.  Guard your sleep!!
