Course Description

Stress and Fatigue Management

Research tells us that fatigue is four times more likely to cause workplace impairment than drugs or alcohol, and that stress impacts overall worker well-being and work performance. Numerous strategies exist to help organizations mitigate these hazards and improve workplace environments. Gain an understanding of the science and workplace factors influencing stress and fatigue. Also, learn practical strategies to recognize and assess stress and fatigue risks in an organization, and more importantly, learn how to implement current best practices to effectively manage these hazards.
