Throughout history, there has been a multitude of events that have helped shape the Occupational Safety and Health doctrines that we have today. Some events have had small impacts, and others have totally reshaped how an entire industry operates.

Arguably the greatest threat to freight transportation safety is operator fatigue. This human factor is a prevalent risk across most major modes. The problem is so significant that the National Transportation Safety Board has identified the need to reduce accidents and incidents caused by marine, aviation and pipeline operator fatigue to be among their “most wanted” list (NTSB, 2009). While this list does not include truck driver fatigue, it does include preventing medically unqualified drivers from operating commercial vehicles, which may be indirectly tied to fatigue.
