Fatigue Training Online for Shiftworkers


Get Started Now:

Shiftworkers who work rotating or night shifts sleep less and are more likely to suffer from fatigue than the general population. And fatigued shiftworkers are less productive, more prone to health problems, more likely to quit, and more likely to be in an accident. Yet most training programs fail to devote any significant time to the issues of fatigue, alertness, and sleep.
