Fatigue is a hidden killer. Fatigue is a major risk factor for employees and the company.
It is the responsibility of the company to ensure the hours of work are structured at a level to avoid the potential for fatigue and fatigue related accidents in the work place.
It is the responsibility of the employee, under their “Duty of Care”, to arrive at work in a fit and alert state that will enable them to work the full rostered hours. Avoiding fatigue may be as simple as getting enough sleep.
By the end of this talk you will understand:
• how to recognise the causes of fatigue;
• the effects of fatigue on work performance;
• how fatigue can cause accidents; and
• how to minimise and manage fatigue.
