Fatigue in the Workplace DVD

Fatigue is an issue that we can no longer ignore. The reason is that many international research bodies have concluded that being awake for 17 hours or more, have the same affect on the human body as having a 0.05% blood alcohol content.

Feeling tired or drowsy after prolonged mental or physical effort at work is normal. Fatigue, however is more than just feeling tired. Fatigue is an acute and/or chronic state of tiredness that can lead to mental and/or physical exhaustion. Fatigue prevents people from functioning within normal boundaries.
