Why You Should Attend

3rd Annual Fatigue Risk Management

Fatigue represents a significant health, safety and productivity risk to many organisations and their workers, with around 16% of Australians undertaking shift work and many more working extended hours. Fatigue is associated with adverse health and well-being outcomes, an increased risk of workplace and driving incidents, and increased absenteeism and presenteeism, particularly in safety critical operations.

While shift workers are a high risk group for fatigue, there are also unique fatigue-related risk factors for lone and remote workers, and also for the approximately 30% of Australians who report sleeping difficulties in any given year. It has been estimated that the direct and indirect productivity and safety costs of disturbed sleep and sleepiness in Australia is around $5B annually. In 24/7 operations, fatigue cannot be eliminated, but it can be minimised and managed and everyone in the workplace had a responsibility to manage the risks associated with fatigue.

This 2-day training course aims to provide you with practical strategies and tools to predict, identify and manage fatigue, initiate health and wellness programme effectively and resolve issues related to shift work to minimize human errors and prevent accidents. We will explore the complexities of fatigue risk management utilising real case studies to highlight the key considerations and challenges in developing and successfully implementing an effective Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS).

    • We needed to make an impact with fatigue management training, and Paula absolutely delivered. Her ability to engage with our frontline staff in a meaningful way was really valuable, and she spoke with expertise, conviction and great enthusiasm. Regional Rail Link | Rail Systems
    • Paula has been instrumental in assisting TransGrid with the development of fatigue management strategies for all our staff and contractors. With operations throughout NSW, our staff and contractors are subjected to high risk safety critical tasks that are both physically and mentally demanding. From training of staff, to developing self-assessment tools, Paula’s knowledge and experience with fatigue management has greatly assisted TransGrid. TransGrid
    • VIOSH contracted Paula Mitchell for half a day in 2013 to lecture our graduate students on the nature of fatigue. The reaction from our students (who are mostly mature-age, experienced OHS professionals) was extremely positive. So much so, that we contracted Paula for a full day in 2014. Again, her expert and fascinating lecture style was particularly well received. I thoroughly recommend any organisation to utilise Paula’s comprehensive knowledge of fatigue and sleep, and her expert, friendly, lecturing style. Victorian Institute of Occupational Safety and Health School of Health Sciences
    • Paula’s professional and friendly manner in engaging with key stakeholders was essential in the development of the Fatigue Risk Management System at Metro Trains Melbourne. Her input and ongoing support has been invaluable, especially in providing a customised and engaging approach that addresses our specific fatigue-related risks. Fatigue Risk Management Advisor, Metro Trains Melbourne
    • We are currently working in partnership with Paula Mitchell to address and manage the risks associated with fatigue across both clinical and non-clinical staff in a large public healthcare service, and we have been impressed by the professional way this work has been undertaken to date. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Paula and FMSSA. Royal Children’s Hospital
