    Hey guys,

    Ontario Safety guide says " Daily off-duty time must include two hours that do not form part of an eight-consecutive-hour", should there be a break taken before the duty ends? Day started 5.30 am and ended at 7.30 pm. Next day again 5.30 am duty starts. Please see the attached sample graph (note the radius is over 160 km)

    10 consecutive meets the requirement.

    10 hours off-duty is required during every 24 hour period in Canada (deferral is allowed, but complicated to get right on paper).

    Without complicating things further, this time can either be (1) 10 consecutive hours off-duty, or (2) a period of no less than 8 hours consecutive off-duty and another period up to 2 hours, separated into as many as 4 different 30 minute (minimum) blocks of time.

    If you take any or all of those 30 minute blocks, it will extend your shift time by the amount of off-duty time you inserted throughout the day (took 1.5 hours off, shift clock now extends to 15.5 hours) to a maximum of 16 hour shift length.

    --

    In conclusion, the times are good (not sure about the distances, don't feel like doing the math, lol) but hot darn, you need to get yourself a straight edge and a sharper pen. You have a disconnected line at 12:15-12:30 and most DOT and MOT officers these days will pull out the magnifying glass to pick apart your book to find a ticket, since most companies run elogs.

    A neat and tidy logbook and they'll likely just hand it back and say have a good day. A few extra minutes every day keeping the lines straight could save you 30-60 minutes at a scale.
