A Fatigue Calculator typically refers to a tool or software application used to estimate or calculate fatigue-related factors in various contexts. Fatigue, in this context, often refers to physical or mental tiredness, and these calculators are designed to help individuals or organizations assess and manage fatigue risks.
Fatigue is a component of alertness in the same way that being distracted is. A person might have received distressful news, been up all night with a sick child at home or be under the influence of drugs. All these scenarios still impact a person's alertness and their ability to do their jobs safely. That is why this Fatigue Calculator implements some aspects of alertness testing such as memory games, puzzles and reaction times.
Workplace fatigue refers to a state of physical or mental exhaustion resulting from prolonged or excessive work, inadequate rest, or poor sleep. It can impact an individual's performance, safety, and overall well-being.
Some jurisdictions have specific regulations and guidelines related to fatigue management, particularly in industries such as transportation, healthcare, and manufacturing. It's important to consult local labour laws and industry-specific regulations to ensure compliance.
While individuals can take steps to manage their own fatigue, effective fatigue management typically requires support and commitment from the organisation. Employers play a crucial role in implementing policies, providing resources, and fostering a supportive environment that prioritises employee well-being.
SafetyIQ’s Fatigue Management Solution provides a streamlined, automated and reliable approach to identifying when your workers are struggling with alertness - a leading indicator of fatigue. 30% of serious accidents are directly related to fatigue, and people are 70% more likely to be in a workplace accident when fatigued. Avoid the serious consequences of fatigue-related incidents, and provide an extra layer of protection for your workers with SafetyIQ.
Users complete a 60-90 second game-like test at the start of each shift or before undertaking a high-risk activity. The system develops a personal, rolling baseline that learns each person’s behaviour patterns, and average performance, and adjusts as they improve with practice.
If a user receives a score outside their baseline parameters, they are prompted to retake the test. If their score doesn’t improve, their manager is notified to check-in with them and see if they are safe to work.
Our goal is to provide you with the ability to highlight at-risk workers, start a conversation and care for your employees.
Switching to SafetyIQ has saved companies valuable time by eliminating their manual processes.
