Army-technology.com recently covered the battle with fatigue in military operations. For this article, Dr. Gareth Evans spoke with Fatigue Science VP & Founder, Pat Byrne, on the subject of fatigue risk management.
Dr. Gareth Evans reports:
“The 24/7 nature of modern operations puts unprecedented demand on the vigilance and alertness of today’s service personnel – and highlights the damage that fatigue can do to morale, performance and even survival, especially during sustained round-the-clock missions.
“Fatigue mitigation has evolved in the military over the past ten to 20 years as more and more research became available showing a strong association between poor sleep and greater safety and health risk,” says Pat Byrne, founder of the company Fatigue Science and a recognized international expert in fatigue risk management.
