Identification and Recommendations for Correction of Equipment Factors Causing Fatigue in Snowplow Operators

SWIFT Event ID: 2000004707

Brief Description: The goal of this project is to identify in-cab and external equipment (henceforth referred to as snowplow equipment) factors that cause operator fatigue and make recommendations to reduce, eliminate, or correct those factors. This study is focused on the snowplow truck and not graders, snow blowers, etc. Further, it is intended that this project will produce actionable and implementable improvements able to be applied to snowplow trucks. Therefore, recommendations that can provide quick turnaround and low cost solutions are preferred, but more in-depth and higher cost solutions may also be considered. The ideas and concepts that are generated by this project may be implemented by state DOTs and shared with the trucking industry. These possible improvements should increase the safety both to our operators and to the traveling public.
