Fatigue is an unavoidable issue in the maritime industry. The nature of maritime operations means that staff on ships and in ports around the world are responsible for safety critical work day and night. Across the industry, at sea and ashore the common method for managing fatigue relies on prescriptive rules for work and rest hours. But in other safety critical industries such as aviation, rail, and nuclear power, there has been a recent move to a goals based approach.
Fatigue risk management is a data-driven approach to continuously monitoring and managing fatigue related risks. This webinar, held in partnership with the not-for-profit Safetytech Accelerator, brings together experts in human factors, maritime operations, and safety technology to explore how ship and port operators can successfully adopt fatigue risk management to improve safety outcomes and the overall wellbeing of their teams. The planned discussion will include:
- How the fatigue risk management system approach works in other industries
- How to successfully engage different stakeholder groups including leadership, employees, and unions in rolling out new fatigue management techniques
- How to use technology to consistently measure fatigue across employee groups
- How to implement new ideas to improve fatigue management and measure their success over time
