Fatigue Management

Fatigue is more than feeling tired and drowsy. In a work context, fatigue is a state of mental and/or physical exhaustion which reduces a person’s ability to perform work safely and effectively.

It can occur because of prolonged mental or physical activity, sleep loss and/or disruption of the internal body clock.

Fatigue can be caused by factors which may be work related, non-work related or a combination of both and can accumulate over time.

Fatigue management is a shared responsibility between management and workers as it involves factors both inside and outside of work. Employers and persons conducting a business are responsible for using a risk management approach to manage fatigue.

For instance, did you know that drivers of fatigue-regulated vehicles must comply with maximum work and minimum rest limits.

SS&T have a dedicated team of professionals who can assist you develop fatigue management programs and offer a variety of fatigue management and related training.
