How to automate fatigue risk management systems


FatigueTech is a digital solution that makes it easy to meet health and safety obligations.

FatigueTech is the easiest way to implement, monitor and manage a workplace fatigue risk management system.

FAStress poses a risk to the health and safety of a workplace, its workers and others, and can be caused by a number of workplace and / or personal risk factors.

Workplaces with a higher risk of fatigue often have factors that include, but are not limited to, shift work, extended working hours, limited breaks, job demands or adverse environmental conditions that must be taken. into account.

By law, workplaces are required to eliminate or, where elimination is not possible, to minimize the risks identified in their professional activities.

However, controlling workplace factors is the only solution to managing the risk of fatigue because the workplace cannot control what workers do when they are not at work.

Workers are often in the best position to know if they are tired and play a critical role in managing fatigue on the job.

Thus, workplaces that have identified fatigue as a risk face three distinct issues: training the workforce on fatigue risk factors and mitigation solutions, and implementing and monitoring management strategies. fatigue alleviation, and engage and help workers manage personal risk factors.

Solve fatigue management issues

For workplaces that need to implement a fatigue risk management system, FatigueTech is a digital solution that makes it easy to meet health and safety obligations and supports workers with the knowledge, skills and the resources needed to:

1. Manage risk factors for personal fatigue

FatigueTech has adopted a laddered care model (see table, right) to help engage and support people in managing their personal risk factors for fatigue.

A staged model of care is a staged approach to service delivery that includes a hierarchy of interventions.

This ensures that employees can access the services most appropriate to their needs at all times, including the ability to upgrade to different levels of care if their needs change.

FatigueTech Personal Risk welcomes low-risk workers to workers who have had a fatigue-related incident or who are managing serious or complex risk factors.

A low risk worker such as a daytime office worker who can periodically work extended hours and who could access the knowledge center self-help resources.

At-risk workers such as shift workers may be required to complete skills-based online training.

Workers who experience fatigue or want more personalized information could undertake the fatigue self-assessment online to guide them to self-help information in the Knowledge Center.

Finally, workers who have been identified as being at high risk for fatigue or who have had fatigue-related incidents combine their fatigue self-assessment with a consultation with a workplace fatigue specialist to develop a plan. personalized action; and if they are identified as having serious or complex needs, they could be referred to multidisciplinary or specialized care.

The subscribed companies can refer workers directly from the platform, which will track the use of the service and the consultation can be carried out anytime and anywhere via the video conferencing function.

2. Implement workplace fatigue mitigation strategies

The FatigueTech Workplace application enables workplaces to automate the implementation and monitoring of their fatigue risk management system.

Four tools make up multiple levels of control in the FatigueTech app, all of which are grouped together in a supervisor kiosk that controls and monitors these tools and enables leaders to proactively manage fatigue across the enterprise.

WorkTime – WorkTime enables workers and managers to monitor compliance and manage overtime requests to ensure that working hours requirements are met.

StartFit – Completed by staff as part of their pre-start routine and monitor eight personal factors that influence fitness for duty and fatigue to prevent incidents and injuries.

FatigueCheck – A one-time assessment to be performed by anyone suffering from fatigue, or as directed by company procedures, to document the actions they take to manage the risk of fatigue.

eJMP – An Electronic Trip Management Plan (eJMP) is a documented process for planning and initiating road transport trips with the goal of arriving safely.

Supervisor Kiosk – a user-friendly dashboard that allows supervisors to access and review records entered by their team to identify, assess and manage work hours, as well as determine workers’ fitness for duty, levels fatigue and travel management risks, all in one place.
