    • Description:
      "Oil and gas workers drive long distances from their homes, lodging sites, and equipment yards to reach well sites that are often in remote areas. The combination of long trips with long shifts can result in fatigue. Fatigued (drowsy) driving is a major cause of crashes in this industry. Crashes are the leading cause of death for oil and gas extraction workers. This fact sheet gives drivers information about fatigue and tips to stay safe behind the wheel." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 20051183 Suggested citation: NIOSH [2018].
