InMotion October 2021 – Fatigue | A Fitness for Work Matter

Everyone in the workplace has a duty to make sure fatigue doesn’t create a risk to health and safety. Employers have a duty of care to take all reasonable steps to ensure work related fatigue risk factors are managed to a level as low as reasonably practicable. Employees have a duty to take reasonable care for their own safety and health and that their acts or omissions don’t adversely affect the health or safety of others. This includes managing non-work related fatigue factors such as adequate sleep, rest, and recovery away from work.

In this InMotion we will explore work and non-work risk factors, signs, and effects of fatigue as well as key policy and procedure mitigation strategies.
