Whether you are small or large company, all employers should reduce the risk of fatigue for their employees. A Fatigue Risk Management Program is intended to help companies increase employee awareness of fatigue and manage the associated risk factors to prevent or reduce fatigue related loss including injury, illness, productivity interruption, environmental or reputation.
Fatigue can lead to the following hazardous conditions, effects or behaviors:
more mistakes than usual
poor logic and judgement including taking risks the worker would usually not take
decreased alertness and watchfulness
failure to respond to changes in surroundings or situations
