This rewarding and enjoyable training workshop is designed to encourage participation and interactive learning. There are ten elements spread over two days giving plenty of scope for discussion and learning the key topics in a bite sized manner. This course is designed to raise awareness of how to develop best practice in fatigue risk management.
Fatigue can result in slower reactions, reduction in the ability to process information, memory lapses, absent-mindedness, decreased awareness, lack of attention, underestimation of risk, reduced coordination etc. According to the HSE, fatigue has been implicated in 20% of accidents on major roads and is said to cost the UK £115 - £240 million per year in terms of work accidents alone. Poorly designed shift-working arrangements and long working hours that do not balance the demands of work with time for rest and recovery can result in fatigue, accidents, injuries and ill health.
General workforce, shift workers, people working overtime including homeworkers. Transport related and operatives operating machinery, managers, supervisors and front-line staff.
