Understanding The Impacts of COVID-19 Research Study

Long haul truck drivers are invited to participate in a research study called Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on truck drivers taking place through the University of Saskatchewan. The researchers are interested in learning how COVID-19 has impacted a drivers work (fatigue, hours worked, access to food and rest areas) as well as challenges they’ve experienced and recommendations for improvement should there be a 2nd COVID-19 wave or something similar in the future.

The researchers wanted to share that they are aware of the critical services that long haul truck drivers are providing to ship goods and products across Canada. The goal of this project is to develop and propose changes (policies and procedures) that support improving the working conditions for drivers.    

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and all responses are confidential. If you are a long haul truck driver and are interested in participating and sharing your feedback please click on the link below to complete the survey. Additional information is provided on the first page of the link.

Note: To complete the survey, participants are required to be a long-haul truck driver and reside in Canada. This research project was approved by the Research Ethics Board at the University of Saskatchewan.

A Message from the Fleet Safety Council Conference Committee to Our Sponsors:

On behalf of the Fleet Safety Council Conference Committee we would like to thank all of our sponsors for their commitment and dedicated sponsorship.

It was a difficult but understandable decision to make this year’s event virtual and the social interaction will definitely be missed by all attendees, however we have 2021 to look forward to! Our Conference Committee has already began planning the 2021 Conference and it is scheduled for October 1st, 2021,at Millennium Gardens Banquet Centre in Brampton.
