Human Fatigue Investigation

On-Track Safety can help your company with the investigation of fatigue related issues from multiple levels including individual, medical, environmental, organizational, operational and regulatory. These investigations will help determine fatigue influence on human performance, alertness and safety.

In shift work environments human error attributed to fatigue and causing inattentiveness and drowsiness is emerging as a significant cause of industrial accidents.

Shift work poses exceptional challenges to shift worker performance due to sleep loss and circadian cycle disruption. This can lead to chronic fatigue causing:

Degraded job performance contributing to errors/accidents (Folkard, 1979)

Involuntary on-duty sleep episodes (microsleeps) regardless of pay, motivation or professionalism (Broughton & Ogilvie, 1992)

Impaired decisions, reaction time, judgment and perception equivalent to alcohol impairment. Fatigue is four times more likely to be a factor in workplace impairment than alcohol (Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia, House of Representatives Report, 2000)

Attitude of indifference to, or lack of recognition of, danger (Dinges, 1990)

Fixation on particular information even while ignoring more important information (Horne, 1978)
Our investigation services include:

  • Independent &objective accident investigation
