7. You gave him good advice.

Transportation behemoths rarely care about safety. Safety is #1 until it affects production. They treat fatigue like it is a behavior, not a condition. I'm well aware of fatigue issues, having been on extra boards for over 22 years with only 8-hour periods of mandatory rest. That was a long time ago and there has been some improvement with the implementation of work-rest cycles that have been mandated by DOT/FRA. But, as is always the case, the carriers try to find a way around any regulations that help protect the workers in the field.
