Reduce Fatigue Related Accidents – Safety Tips

Safety Matters – Great Info from the NationaLease Newsletter

Practicing good safety can save lives and ultimately can save you money, and NationaLease wants to help keep safety at the forefront with some helpful safety tips. Today’s tip discusses preventing fatigue-related accidents. Research shows that driver fatigue may contribute to up to 20% of accidents on the road, here are some ways to help combat fatigue:

• Make sure you are fit to drive. Do not begin a journey if you are tired. Get a good
night’s sleep before embarking on a long journey.
• Avoid undertaking long journeys between midnight and 6am, when natural
alertness is at a minimum
• Plan your journey to take sufficient breaks. A minimum break of at least 15 minutes
after every two hours of driving is recommended
• If you feel sleepy, stop in a safe place. Do not stop on the hard
shoulder of a motorway
• The most effective ways to counter sleepiness are to drink, for example,
two cups of caffeinated coffee and to take a short nap (up to 15 minutes).
• For more information on preventing fatigue-related accidents, see this article from ntsb.gov

Maintaining Shock Absorbers and Air Springs

Suspension performance suffers if they’re not in working order.
Air suspensions cushion the ride for drivers, vehicles and loads. Among their components are the springs themselves and shock absorbers, which help control the movement of the bags and the rest of the suspension. These parts are subject to wear and aging, and must be regularly inspected and repaired or replaced when necessary.

The American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council recently revised its Recommended Practice 643A, Air Ride Suspension Maintenance Guidelines.

“Generally speaking, air springs are very durable components,” says John Healy with Stemco, which offers Goodyear brand air springs.

Because they’re made of rubber, air bags usually “age out” before they wear out, notes Dave Vanette, new business development manager at Firestone Industrial Products. “This aging out process has a lot to do with the heat history of the part and exposure to ozone,” he explains. If an air spring is run predominately where the average temperature is high, it accelerates this process.
