Do you think hard work won’t kill anyone?
That could be a fatal mistake
Worker fatigue isn’t just bad, it is life threatening.
Not only are fatigued workers slower and more prone to making errors, they are more likely to be involved in accidents and suffer injuries - in some occupations fatal.
But fatigue is dangerous in any industry.
Fatigue can cause serious health problems in workers, particularly when they are required to work long hours or irregular shifts.
As an employer, you have a strict legal duty to identify and minimise the risks of fatigue in your workers, even if demands outside of the workplace are a contributing factor.

- the health and safety risks of fatigue – both direct and indirect;
- the causes of fatigue;
- how to identify fatigue in your workers;
