Using FACT to Measure & Analyze Fatigue

There is now a global body of scientific evidence that shiftwork in the 24/7 workplace is a high risk occupational safety exposure, and that the development of Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS) has emerged as the internationally accepted standard for managing the inherent costs, risks and liabilities of shiftwork.

“Using FACT to Meaure & Analyze Fatigue” will be presented by Bill Sirois at the 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit, and will review the new ANSI standard for FRMS in refining and petrochemical industries, as well how the other industries as diverse as Aviation, Railroads, Mining and Utilities are implementing Corporate FRMS systems as a continuous improvement process. It will also provide examples of fatigue management tools that can provide the analytics needed to ensure the success of programs for optimizing shiftworker health, safety and quality of life.
