An educational website focusing on sleep, sleep disorders and fatigue management is being created in a collaborative effort among the UTU, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, the Federal Railroad Administration, sleep medicine experts at Harvard Medical School, and Boston Public Radio station WGBH, which is Public Broadcasting’s largest producer of education web and television content.
Input from UTU rail members, nationwide, is essential to the project.
UTU members are encouraged to complete an anonymous, online survey that should take no more than 15 minutes.
