Fatigue Science and Morgan Sindall receive award of High Commendation from IOSH

Morgan Sindall and Fatigue Science receive award of High Commendation on November 9th, 2017

Fatigue Science is proud to announce that our UK clients, Morgan Sindall, have received an award of High Commendation from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) for their use of our Readiband Solution.

The award was presented at IOSH’s annual Rail Industry Conference 2017 in Nottingham, UK on November 9th. This award represents both the occupational health and safety field’s growing awareness of fatigue’s effect on worker safety and productivity and their increasing recognition of organizations working to address it through innovative means.

Andrew Jellis, Managing Director Rail, Morgan Sindall said, “We’ve always known that in our dynamic, 24/7 operating environment, fatigue is present, but largely invisible. Now, [with Readiband] we have a tool that not only measures the risks, but also empowers our workers to reduce them.”

The Readiband Solution, a recent addition to the Fatigue Science suite of offerings, enables workers to set, track, and achieve personalized goals for reducing their own fatigue. To do this, the solution combines high-resolution sleep data from the wrist-worn Readiband 5 with a mobile app that provides instant fatigue analysis. The analysis, powered by the U.S. Army-developed SAFTE Model, shows workers the cumulative impact of their sleep via an “Alertness Score” that quantifies their fatigue levels at any given moment. Workers can then use this information to set realistic Alertness Goals based on sustained changes to their sleep habits. They can then track their progress towards their goals on a daily basis.

When sustained, a worker’s sleep habit improvements can then be translated for employers into quantifiable reductions in on-duty fatigue, increased productivity, and lower risk on duty.  

Thus far, Morgan Sindall’s Rail Division has helped over 100 employees measure, manage, and reduce their fatigue. An early adopter of Fatigue Science technology since 2016, Morgan Sindall has found similar success in reducing fatigue on other large-scale rail projects. We continue to enjoy working closely with them as they make further advancements to improve employee well-being, mental health, and safety.

Introducing ReadiAnalytics: real-time objective visibility into workforce fatigue

Unlike subjective methods for estimating crew fatigue, ReadiAnalytics captures anonymous sleep data from a sample of crew workers and then processes it alongside a variety of circadian factors with a scientifically-validated biomathematical model. The model then quantifies which on-duty crews will be the most and least fatigued, and how that fatigue will trend over time as their shift pattern progresses. Crucially, worker privacy is preserved, as insights are anonymized and aggregated for each crew, site, and the company.
