Worker fatigue may not seem like a workplace safety issue but it is. For example, fatigue can lead to safety incidents because exhausted workers may have slowed reaction times or exercise poor judgment. So it’s important to take steps to address worker fatigue if that’s an issue in your workplace. An effective way to do so is through a fatigue risk management system. And a key component of such a system is a fatigue management policy.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
Tailor this policy to comply with your company’s fatigue risk management system and give it to all staff, including supervisors and workers.
