Fatigued Feet

Maintaining awareness of the workforce’s health and wellbeing is important in maintaining a happy site.

Health and safety risks may not always come in the form of an immediate hazard.

Physical and psychological long-term effects are also risks and should be treated with the same level of monitoring and consideration.

One site demonstrated their caring nature in response to the issue of fatigue:

  • Via the feedback policy, the issue of fatigue in feet and legs was raised by the project team;
  • Pedometers were issued to a number of operatives which in turn indicated many operatives were taking as many as 15,000 steps a day;
  • To help alleviate the problem, the site issued gel inserts for boots to the workforce;
  • This reduced the strain and tension on the feet and legs of operatives on site.
