We know that fatigue isn’t the most exciting topic to talk about, but it’s an important one, especially in context to the workplace.
Fatigue is not just feeling tired or sleepy. It’s the state of mental and/or physical exhaustion, which reduces a person’s ability to safety perform their job. It can occur because of sustained mental or physical activity, sleep loss and/or disruption of your internal body clock.
Fatigue can cause big problems in the workplace as it reduces alertness which leads to errors and an increase in injuries and accidents.
To help you manage fatigue in your workplace, we’ve created a Toolbox Talk that covers topics such as:
- Definition of fatigue
- Signs of fatigue
- Impact of fatigue
- Tips to manage fatigue.
