Employees might be speaking out about fatigue; but what happens in your workplace when they do?
As fatigue risk awareness increases, so do our organizational responsibilities. Leaders and supervisors are accountable for walking the precarious line between protecting employees and managing production targets. With nearly 1 in 3 workers falling asleep on the job and approximately 60% of people admitting they work through fatigue, it has never been more important to protect employees from an almost invisible risk.
This webinar focuses on two factors that play a significant role in inducing and influencing fatigue: people and the environment. Using examples, Senior Safety Consultant Jenny Krasny will discuss the leader/supervisor role in detecting fatigue, how they can identify fatigue stigma and what they can do to change it.
•Detecting signs of fatigue risk in employees
•Recognising cultural markers of fatigue in an organization
•What to do once fatigue risk is identified
