Shiftwork can have a significant impact on the performance of an employee. This effect is mainly associated with the distortions that may occur in the ” biological clock ” of the human body , which is built on daytime functioning . Shift work can throw our normal patterns out of whack and take a toll on physical and mental health. Examples are the reduction of alertness , attention , vigilance, cognitive functions and an increase in fatigue.
Fatigue within an organisation impacts not only on safety but also affects the productivity, absenteeism and employee satisfaction .
Qualiteit Consultancy can help organisations to manage fatigue effectively by implementing a Fatigue Risk Management System.
This is a data – driven system , which identifies safety risks, provides insight into the causes of fatigue and enables a continuous improvement process , based on scientific principles and operational experience.
The need for a Fatigue Risk Management System is increasingly recognized within Europe and is already partially included in the Aviation Industry as a mandatory element in European legislation (Basic Regulation EC 216/2008, Annex IV, 8.f).
Also in the following industries safety, productivity, absenteeism and employee satisfaction can be improved by implementing a Fatigue Risk Management System:
- ground transport ;
- industrial workers ;
- health care and welfare sector ;
- security ;
- fire fighting ;
- emergency workers ;
- police .
Qualiteit Consultancy can support the complete implementation process of a Fatigue Risk Management System, including project management.
