Welcome to Risk Mentor Fatigue Management

Business Input - Fit for purpose equipment and work stations reduce task physical and cognitive demands

Expectation

Equipment will be sourced and work stations designed so that they reduce fatigue impacts for workers


Specification

Requirements:

  • Operator stations on equipment will be specified to include ergonomic considerations.  These should include:
  • Vibration and noise levels
  • Ambient light (to support night work sleep/wake schedules)
  • Cognitive load (providing consistent control devices and logic)
  • Work locations will be set up so that sufficient area lighting is available to maintain sleep/wake cycles for night shift workers
  • Ambient noise and vibration will be minimised at worker locations and removed (as far as possible) at lunch/meal rooms
  • Maintenance activities are scheduled to inspect and maintain the site required ergonomics of operator/worker stations


Implementation

  • New equipment will go through an Introduction to Site process which confirms that ergonomic designs specified are provided in the equipment prior to being put into service
  • Commissioning of work areas will include night shift checks to confirm ambient light and noise/vibration levels meet site requirements
  • Maintenance strategies will be developed and actioned to inspect and correct any faults in operator and employee work stations


Monitoring

  • Maintenance records are kept and work order status is regularly reported on (to provide an early highlighting of any site standards slippage)
  • Inspections of work areas will be conducted by supervisors, functional role holders and more senior site personnel – with records of these inspections being controlled
  • Third party audits will confirm that inspections are meeting requirements for site against statute and leading practice standards
