The risks and costs of human fatigue, and how one technological solution is helping predict and prevent it.
The Science of Sleep
We look at why and how we sleep, the factors that determine “good sleep”, and how poor sleep leads to cognitive fatigue.
Fatigue at Work
Next, we examine why workplace fatigue is such a serious concern—its impacts on safety, productivity and employee well-being.
Technology to Combat Workplace Fatigue
And finally, we see how new technology is addressing fatigue, including the ability to predict it before it occurs.
What do we mean by “fatigue?”
At Fatigue Science, when we say “fatigue,” we’re talking about the fatigue that’s caused by poor or inadequate sleep. Known as “cognitive fatigue,” it’s the fatigue that leads to reduced alertness, reaction time, and impaired decision- making on the job. The kind that can seriously compromise workplace safety.
