Your people are your most important resource. Helping to manage their fatigue levels means a higher level of on-the-job safety and more effective workers.
Finishing the job in industrial settings often requires that personnel work schedules that challenge their alertness and vigilance – even momentary lapses pose a major hazard to operational safety. This is why it is so crucial to implement scientifically validated fatigue countermeasures in your organization.
For many managers, reducing fatigue risk is solely related to a desire to reduce workplace accidents. For others, however, changing employee schedules to optimize employee alertness is viewed as the key to increasing productivity and profitability.
Until recently, fatigue was virtually impossible to measure, making it difficult for organization leaders to know which counter-fatigue strategies were best suited to their unique workplace.
But now, with the tools available through Fatigue Science, this problem has been solved. By using the Fatigue Avoidance Scheduling Tool (FAST®) to address fatiguing scheduling practices and the ReadiBand™ to understand how individual employees are affected by different scheduling, a tailored mitigation program can be implemented to reduce workplace accidents and improve employee performance and morale.
