Shiftwork Fatigue Training Video
Shift Work - Preventing Fatigue can affect work performance. People who work rotating shifts suffer a higher rate of illness and death than day shift workers. Experience and statistics show that human error is the primary cause of 85% to 98% of accidents and injuries. If a person does not get his required sleep, he accumulates a sleep debt, which can only be eliminated through sufficient amounts of sleep. Sleepiness is the brain's signal that warns you that you need to sleep. Losing just two hours of sleep can affect your performance and can include degraded judgment, poor decision making, memory loss, slowed reaction time, lack of concentration, and of course, change your mood. Surveys show that shift workers are chronically deprived of sleep. This group has approximately twice as many automobile accidents as the 9 to 5 workers. This program focuses on understanding fatigue from shift work and procedures to cope with change.
