Fatigue Risk Management
What do the Exxon Valdez grounding, Chernobyl Nuclear Meltdown and Colgan Air flight 3407 crash all have in common?
Fatigue has been identified as a major area of risk for many workers in our modern society and a significant source of workplace accidents and incidents. Fatigue impacts many aspects of a business’ operations, because of its affects on mood, communication, reaction times, alertness and decision making.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
While a business cannot eliminate fatigue, it can effectively manage the fatigue risks. Workplace health and safety legislation is partly driving the move towards Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS) implementation, but so too is a growing corporate recognition that an organisation’s whole operation is enhanced when fatigue related risks are managed effectively.
By implementing a Fatigue Risk Management Program you can ensure that fatigue risks within your organisation are known and acted upon in a proactive manner. We partner with our clients to develop, implement and monitor customised and compliant Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS) to provide comprehensive protection for your people and operations.
WILL IMPLEMENTING A FRMS BE EXPENSIVE?
Not necessarily, although there are costs associated with the implementation of FRMS, reductions in worker fatigue experienced as a result of changes often result in significant improvements in employee productivity, job satisfaction and a reduction in absenteeism as well as a reduction in reportable incidents.
As a result of these productivity and safety improvements many organisations experience a positive return on investment through FRMS implementation. Our experienced consultants are happy to discuss the positive outcomes and potential costs of FRMS implementation in an obligation free consultation.
