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.
