CBC’s ‘The National’ reports on Fatigue Science’s work with transport and elite sports clients

 

 

 

On October 14th, The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) aired a special report on their nightly news cast ‘The National’. The report The Danger of Drowsy featured Fatigue Science and some of our customers.

CBC News’ reporter David Common took an in-depth look at human fatigue in the trucking industry, highlighting Fatigue Science’s work with BC-based Arrow Transportation Systems and their drivers.

Also covered in the report was our experience with professional sports teams, such as the Seattle Seahawks, in the area of sleep and high performance management for elite athletes.

Our thanks to the CBC and our valued customers who took part in this effort.

Fatigue Science mention on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada

During the first intermission of Monday’s playoff hockey game between the Pittsburg Penguins and New York Rangers, the subject of CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada turned to playoff fatigue. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault was questioned on the subject of fatigue following Sunday’s game loss to Pittsburg to which he called attention to his goalie: “He was on top of his game, he wasn’t tired.” Vigneault stated, “If he’s not tired, nobody else should be.”

Addressing the topic, CBC Sports host Ron MacLean calls attention to Fatigue Science and our work with a couple of pro sport teams.
