Fatigue Management

Fatigue is generally considered to be a decline in mental and/or physical performance that results from prolonged exertion, sleep loss and/or disruption of a person’s ‘internal clock’.

Worker fatigue can result in:

• lack of attention • slower reactions
• reduced co-ordination • decreased awareness
• underestimation of risk • memory lapses or absent-mindedness
• a reduced ability to process information

Ready Construction are committed, so far as is reasonably practicable, to protecting all employees, sub-contractors, and any others who may be affected by their work activities including the public from fatigue related risks.

The Directors are responsible for implementing measures to minimise fatigue related risks and documented procedures are implemented, monitored and reviewed.

Fatigue Management will be regularly monitored, reviewed in the light of legislative or organisational changes and on an annual basis and updated as necessary as per Best Practice guide RS504 Iss1.
