Participants will receive training to:
  • Identify the pitfalls sleep deprivation
  • Determine the steps that must be taken to deal with sleep issues

“She made me think about how much I endanger myself and everyone around me when I brag about getting along on a few hours sleep."

“We are now making 'sleep deprivation and its dangers' a part of our safety presentation at work.  Thanks for the wake up call!"

"Our city workers got the wake up call that was a long time coming!"
