3rd Annual Fatigue Risk Management
Increasing productivity and efficiency and maximising operational performance in safe environments
15-16 June 2017 
Sydney, Australia
Fatigue represents a significant health, safety and productivity risk to many organisations and their workers, with around 16% of Australians undertaking shift work and many more working extended hours. Fatigue is associated with adverse health and well-being outcomes, an increased risk of workplace and driving incidents, and increased absenteeism and ‘presenteeism’, particularly in safety critical operations.

This 2-day training course aims to provide you with practical strategies and tools to predict, identify and manage fatigue, initiate health and wellness programme effectively and resolve issues related to shift work to minimize human errors and prevent accidents. We will explore the complexities of fatigue risk management utilising real case studies to highlight the key considerations and challenges in developing and successfully implementing an effective Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS).
