Fatigue is often a taboo subject in the workplace. It’s either ignored, misunderstood, or under-estimated in its impact on safety. This presentation is designed to increase awareness of fatigue and provide personal fatigue management strategies for workers in all industries. Through the training, participants will obtain a basic knowledge of the science of fatigue, its signs, and effects. The causes and cures of fatigue will be covered from three different perspectives: Operational, Environmental & Physiological, and Behavioral. Fatigue management should be a component of every safety
system, actively and intentionally mitigated like other hazards– because coffee can’t offset poor sleep hygiene.
