Live e-series: Fatigue Risk Management in the New ‘Normal’

With around 16% of Australians undertaking shift work and many more working extended hours, particularly in safety critical operations, fatigue represents a significant health, safety and productivity risks. Management of fatigue in the workplace is not an easy task because fatigue affects every individual differently, and the effects can vary from day to day. It is regulated heavily with many companies having FRM systems in place but the question is whether fatigue laws and systems that companies have truly work in hospital rooms, behind the driver wheels, in the warehouses, restaurants and in the mines.

Fatigue Risk Management training has been aiding safety professionals since 2015. It has been helping in developing effective fatigue management systems tailored to companiesí individual needs as well as introducing the most recent scientific research, innovative metrics and fatigue technologies. Networking with an array of different industry professionals has helped attendees explore different industry approaches and initiatives to overcoming identified obstacles to the implementation of fatigue management processes. Even though difficult to eliminate, particularly in 24/7 operations, fatigue can be minimised and managed with tailored tools and effective planning.
