Fatigue & Countermeasures Training (FACT)
This single day course provides delegates with an understanding of the scientific principles and potential countermeasures tailored to specific industries
These courses are ideally suited as an introduction for organisations to understand the core concepts of fatigue management.
The courses include:
- About sleep and fatigue and methods used to measure them.
- Circadian rhythms and the effects of shift work and timezones.
- Consequences of fatigue in the workplace; incidents and accidents.
- Workload and other factors that may influence occupational alertness.
- Countermeasures that can be used to mitigate fatigue.
An introduction to the principles of Fatigue Risk Management
This one-day course introduces the principles of FRM to explain what is involved, how it has been used and the benefits derived from it.
The course is tailored for each industry to incorporate specific examples and is appropriate for organisations wishing to implement FRM or at an early stage of implementation.
The course includes:
- Introduction to fatigue science and countermeasures.
- The benefits of an effective FRMS
- The regulatory process (where applicable)
- Project planning
- Process development
- Using biomathematical fatigue models
- Developing safety cases
- Monitoring and reporting metrics.
Using the FRMSc biomathematical fatigue models
This one day course provides delegates with an understanding of the types of biomathematical models that are available and how they can be used to identify fatigue hazards and resolve them.
This course assumes delegates have already attended the FACT course. Both courses can be delivered consecutively.
- The differing types of biomathematical models available.
- How a biomathematical model is constructed.
- Loading data sets directly from scheduling suites.
- Limitations and choice of models.
- How to navigate the models and interpret the results.
- Using the model for problem-solving and exploring alternative solutions.
