On Site Rest Stop for Delivery Drivers and Driver Fatigue Brochure

1 in 5 driver deaths in Ireland can be attributed to driver fatigue. Sites should consider the wellbeing of all drivers connected to the site and ensure they are well-rested to minimise the risk of road accidents.

See the examples below for how one site achieved this:

  • In response to the realisation that on either side of the site motorway, service/lay-by areas were around 60km in either direction, the site developed a specific lay-by area with free coffee and tea facilities, hot food servery, toilets, showers and a quiet room.
  • These facilities are already available for full-time site workers, but the lay-by was created specifically for people who spend their working days on the road, including delivery drivers, couriers and sales representatives.
  • Upon arrival on site, site security issue drivers with a bespoke hand-out brochure with information and maps showing the nearest rest stops/lay-bys on main roads near the site. Drivers are also provided with a booklet about the dangers of driver fatigue.
