Course Description:

Everyone feels fatigued now and then.  It's a normal biological state that tells us when we need to sleep.  But when it happens in safety critical, high risk, or influential situations, it can lead to negative operational and financial outcomes with often dangerous results.  Human fatigue impacts the health, safety and productivity of the 24/7 workforce.  It can lead to accidents and mistakes that can be costly.  This course is designed to provide executives, managers and supervisors with practical tools and approaches to effectively manage sleep-related fatigue in the workplace and keep employees healthy, safe and productive.  This course is taught from a safety management perspective.


CERTIFICATION:  All participants who attend the full course will be awarded certificates of completion. A course topic mapping onto the Canadian Aviation Regulations (the CARs) for fatigue risk management training will be provided.
