Managing Fatigue to Ensure Alertness
Managing the 38 hours at work per week is a good start but what about the other 130 hours?
Whilst it’s being called fatigue management the outcome you want is to ensure your staff are alert when you need them to be.
Current prescriptive regulations have a major flaw, that is, they assume all people are equal and we know this isn’t the case. Individual life stressors and responsibilities can vary greatly in everyone’s life.
To manage the real-life scenario, Techsafe Aviation assists in developing additional education and risk management steps to your fatigue plan. The tailoring of your fatigue plan allows for differences in age, personal situation, climate, biological clock, sleep patterns, etc. Unless these factors are addressed your Fatigue Risk Management Plan won’t be achieving an outcome as low as reasonably practicable.
Techsafe Aviation has been working with Circadian Australia to develop Fatigue Risk Management Plans and Systems for clients who are intent on ensuring their staff remain alert when needed by using scientifically proven models and wearable devices.
Talk to Techsafe Aviation today about how we can conduct a fatigue study at your organisation, so you can start to see the hazards you face and ensure your staff are alert when it counts most.
