Tired on the Job: Managing the Safety and Health Risks of Fatigue - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Fatigue is constantly noted as one of the top five causes of worker error, and is 4x more likely to contribute to worker impairment than drugs or alcohol — are your workers being affected by this often-overlooked safety issue? Join this webinar to learn effect fatigue management tips and best practices on how to integrate them into your safety programs.



Fatigue is four times more likely to contribute to worker impairment than drugs or alcohol, and a fatigued worker is 3 times more likely to cause a workplace incident. Fatigue also directly impacts business goals through poor decision-making, absenteeism, reduced productivity, short- and long-term benefit costs, and higher employee turnover, resulting in increased onboarding and training costs.

Despite these serious consequences, fatigue is an under-recognized risk in many work environments, particularly those that involve safety-sensitive work. Fatigued employees create serious hazards for themselves and others, particularly when other factors—longer hours, seasonal peaks, shift work, monotonous tasks, physically and mentally demanding work—magnify the risks. 

Managing fatigue in the workplace, however, is not always an easy task. It requires a comprehensive approach that recognizes both organizational structures and the need for collaboration and worker engagement.

Use this on-demand webinar, with Susan Sawatzky, an independent consultant specializing in Fatigue Risk Management and Psychological Health and Safety, for a webinar that will provide safety leaders with the information they need to better understand the risks of fatigue on the job and develop effective mitigation strategies. Attendees will learn about the Eye on Fatigue Model, a unique approach that integrates organizational and worker empowerment strategies to create a strong fatigue management safety culture using tools to proactively recognize fatigue risk exposures and take corrective action to prevent fatigue-related errors and incidents.

You’ll gain a solid understanding of the health and safety risks associated with fatigue, the factors that affect fatigue, methods for assessing fatigue risk exposures within their operations, and practical tips for implementing fatigue risk management strategies in their organizations. 

You’ll learn:

  • How fatigue impacts safety and health
  • Current research and scientific findings on fatigue
  • Workplace issues and barriers to managing fatigue
  • How to assess fatigue risks
  • Key strategies and best practices for managing fatigue
  • Content to cover in employee training on fatigue risks
