About the workshop
The field of fatigue management is rapidly evolving with technology and changing workforce dynamics. While there is a better understanding of the human and system aspects of fatigue management, how do safety and risk professionals make sense of the details and put a plan into practice?
This hands-on, interactive workshop will offer innovative solutions for managing fatigue risk. Attendees will delve into the science of sleep and the latest research on the causes and consequences of fatigue. They will also explore the practicalities of fatigue incident investigation and undertake an interactive exercise to map out a complete bespoke fatigue risk assessment. Delegates will leave with practical tools and an action plan to integrate fatigue risk management into traditional frameworks and systems.
