Recognising and Addressing the Issue of Worker Fatigue

It is essential that the health and wellbeing of your workforce is taken into consideration and that your workers feel valued and well looked after.

Site management should identify potential aspects that may negatively impact employees wellbeing or their ability to effectively perform tasks and implement measures to offset these.

Below is an example of how a site ensured the wellbeing of their employees by addressing the issue of fatigue:

  • Travel distances and methods were recorded for all personnel at induction;
  • They were reviewed and everyone who had a long and/ or difficult journey to work was personally visited at their work place by a member of the site management team and spoken to;
  • An additional work break was offered with refreshment provided, if there was assessed signs of fatigue.
