This Sleep and Fatigue Awareness Training provides an understanding of the importance of sleep at work and in our lives. Due to shift work, hectic schedules and technology, many of us are not getting adequate rest each night. Over time this lost sleep accumulates and becomes chronic fatigue.

Research has shown that lack of sleep is a significant hazard and contributor to human error, ill-health and injuries as well as decreased productivity. It is estimated that fatigue is responsible for some 20% of work-related accidents, costing the UK around £115-240 million every year.

This highlights the importance of fatigue awareness in the workplace and makes it vital for employers to take whatever steps possible for managing chronic fatigue at work.

Why Sleep & Fatigue Awareness Course is Vital

Fatigue has a significant impact on both the quality of our lives and our ability to do our jobs. Lack of sleep increases the likelihood of poor mental health and stress and anxiety. A fatigued employee will be less alert, will have slower reaction times, and have less interest in work in contrast to other colleagues who are not fatigued.

More than 3.5 million people in the UK are shift employees and is estimated that poorly designed shift working arrangements and management can result in fatigue which in turn is a major reason for work-related accidents alone.

Employers have a legal duty to take the necessary measures to reduce fatigue at work. This makes it vital for both employers and their staff to develop an understanding of this issue at work and this can be done with appropriate fatigue awareness training.
