Shiftwork Fatigue (Schools)
Shiftwork Fatigue - Our world operates 24 hours a day. Round the clock operations are essential to a majority of businesses. There's a price to be paid however, for those persons working swing shifts and midnight shifts. The problem is increased for those persons working rotating shifts and who suffer a higher rate of illness and death than their straight day shift counterparts. Surveys show that shift workers are chronically deprived of sleep and this group has approximately twice as many automobile accidents as regular 9 to 5 day workers. Inattentiveness and loss of alertness are among the most important contributors to human error. Experience and statistics have shown that human error is the primary cause of 85 to 98 percent of accidents and injuries.
Topics covered in this safety video include: understanding the problem, reducing the problem, personal issues, wellness and lifestyle, personal accountability, and exceeding one's limits.
