Specifically, there are two intervention groups: (1) Training plus actigraph fatigue level feedback and (2) training only with wearing actigraph but no fatigue level feedback. The control group will receive neither training nor feedback on fatigue levels from their actigraph. Participants will complete a baseline and follow-up Work and Health survey, sleep and activities diaries, and sleep health knowledge questions during each of 5 observation periods. The Work and Health survey administered in the first observation period will be more comprehensive and the abbreviated follow up Work and Health surveys administered for the remaining observation periods will serve to capture only responses to questions that can change from one observation period to the next. Only participants randomly selected to take the training will complete a training evaluation survey used to strengthen the training’s effectiveness. Data will also be collected from company installed in- This project is poised to have considerable impact in the contribution of an evidence base for effective interventions that could be used by other taxi companies and drivers for ride sourcing companies to promote strategies in road safety. The burden table lists that 120 of the 180 taxi drivers in the study will complete the online training and evaluation (approximately three hours). All drivers (180) will complete the Work and Health survey, and the knowledge survey each week of the study (five times each per participant). Each participant will complete the sleep and activity diary five times a day, each day for 35 days (175 times total) which will require approximately two minutes for each response. There will also be three meetings for recruitment and enrollment (once), fitting the actigraph (weekly), and a final meeting (weekly). The total estimated annualized burden is anticipated to be 2,700 hours. There are no costs to participants other than their time. vehicle monitoring systems on safety critical events (e.g., hard braking, speeding) already collected on all drivers as a direct measurement of fatigue-related driving performance events used to validate self-report data. As part of their daily sleep and health diaries drivers will be asked to complete three-minute psychomotor vigilance tests (PVTs) five times throughout the day, to directly measure alertness using an app installed on an electronic device. At the end of the data collection period the training will be offered to the remaining study participants who will be provided an opportunity, but no remuneration, to complete the training and training survey. Study staff will use the findings from this evaluation to improve the training program, including content and delivery, as well as compare fatigue between intervention groups. Potential impacts of this project include improvements in work behaviors for coping with shift work and long work hours and an objective reduction in fatigue compared to the control groups.
