Fatigue is a chameleon. It disguises itself as a rules violation, a lapse of attention, non-compliance, or more often, human error. As a result, organizations deal with the consequences of fatigue-related incidents on a regular basis without even knowing it.
It is time to open our eyes to see how fatigue lurks not only in our workers, but hidden in the design and management of our work system. This session will offer practical workplace strategies to mitigate risk and will include a review of a recent nationwide analysis of fatigue in the workplace completed by the speaker.
- Discover the fundamental change needed in the way we plan work activities, evaluate errors, record incidents, perform investigations, conduct audits and collect worker input
- Understand the impact of fatigue on performance
- Learn to make informed decisions on the best way to identify, measure, and mitigate fatigue related risk
