SmartCap Fatigue Management

Fatigue is a serious problem among truck drivers and heavy machine operators as it can minimise operatives’ awareness and endanger the safety of all on site. Steps should be taken to monitor and manage operative fatigue.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • Used the SmartCap fatigue management system to manage the performance and safety of personnel.
  • The SmartCap includes a Lifeband which fits onto headgear and includes five hi-tech sensors that can read electrical brain activity.
  • The Lifeband gives an assessment of the overall state of wakefulness of the driver/ operator.
  • The system can also give an advanced warning of driver/ operator fatigue and the occurrence of a microsleep.
  • The SmartCap displays data to the operative so they can track their own fatigue, and provides data to the company for company-wide fatigue management.
