Learn how to manage fatigue risk in your workplace.

Fatigue is more than simply feeling tired or drowsy, it is an overwhelming sense of tiredness and feelings of exhaustion associated with impaired physical or cognitive functioning. Pending the degree of impairment, individuals can be placed at risk of injury, illness or even death.

Multiple factors can be associated with the development of fatigue, such as not getting an adequate sleep opportunity caused by extended working hours, working on night shifts, and stress and extreme mental load. Fatigue will often affect people in different forms, whether it be their physical or mental performance that is impaired.

It is for this reason that KINNECT has developed a comprehensive Supervisor Fatigue Management Training Program that provides participants with an understanding of fatigue, its signs and symptoms, causes and considerations and related consequences.

This fatigue management course also provides participants with practical and realistic management strategies for workers to overcome their fatigue and achieve better quality rest, thus improving their health whilst reducing their accident risk.

Successful completion of this course provides you with the knowledge and skills –

  • to identify signs and symptoms of fatigue in your employees
  • to understand fatigue management strategies to minimise fatigue-related risks that can cause accidents and injuries to your employees
  • to implement an effective state-approved fatigue risk management system in the workplace
