Workplace Fatigue Risk Management System

While workplace fatigue has been around as long as workplaces have existed, the problem has assumed a new urgency. Labour shortages and rising wages are creating intense pressure on workers to work longer and sleep less. The inevitable buildup of fatigue and exhaustion is increasing the likelihood of workplace incidents, injuries and even deaths to the extent it leads to:

  • Slowed reaction time;
  • Reduced vigilance;
  • Impaired decision-making ability;
  • Poor judgment;
  • Distraction during complex tasks; and
  • Loss of awareness in critical situations
