People and businesses feel managing employees' hours is the core factor in managing fatigue - but there are many causes of fatigue that are not solved by managing shift patterns alone.
Fatigue - not just overworked staff
Businesses have a legal requirement to complete Risk Assessments including their control measure in place to reduce fatigue risk.
The control measures businesses need to record and have in operation are broad in order to tackle this increasing 21st century problem.
Business can reduce fatigue at work risks by: simplifying tasks, allowing easy feedback of their work activities, actively completing near miss and positive intervention reporting, providing accurate and reliable information to reduce the errors that lead to extended shifts, providing tools to manage individual workers stress and anxiety in & outside of work.
Don't overlook contractors' working hours, yes this is a requirement, not only for the new fatigue standards, but to create compliance with the existing Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

"Safety PAL has quickly become an essential tool for dealing with many aspects of Health and Safety at PPX metal management… I wouldn't want to be running PPX without it. Highly recommended."
Paul Pearce, PPX Metal Management
"From a director's point of view, Safety PAL has given us more security, we've got documented proof... if the HSE were to walk in to the office, we could log them straight on, they would be able to get the info they need, which would alleviate any issues."
