Fighting Fatigue in the Workplace

START DATE:1/27/2022

Start Time:2:00 PM EST

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Workplaces across industries continue to seek innovative solutions to the ongoing fatigue problem among workers, an issue that contributes to billions of dollars in overhead costs for employers across the country and around the world. Caused by a range of factors including rest patterns, scheduling and rostering tactics, consecutive shift work, and high levels of exertion during shifts, fatigue costs employers between $1,200 and $3,100 per employee per year. For an enterprise with 1,000 employees, that amounts to a loss of $1.4 million per year or more.

Experts will explore how data from recent case studies illuminate solutions that employers can utilize to minimize fatigue among their workers. We will showcase findings from a study of fatigue in aviation settings. In conclusion, the speakers will define several key new strategies for fighting fatigue in the workplace, from the increased data analysis provided by on-site observation to the immediate improvements that can be generated with technological integration.

  • Discuss root causes and costs of chronic fatigue among workers
  • Showcase studies that provide revelatory fatigue information from employees in common work environments
  • Highlight proactive, innovative strategies for fatigue management, including benefits from improved worker engagement, data collection, and technological services
