NIOSH ERC Ergonomics Webinar: Fatigue in the Workplace: Effects on Health and Performance and Measurement Considerations

December 16, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A leading cause of non-fatal work injuries is overexertion and bodily reaction. What is less understood is the role fatigue plays as a contributing factor. Fatigue in the workplace is a multidimensional process that results in diminished worker performance and is often under appreciated and unrecognized. Reducing the incidence of fatigue-induced workplace injuries and lost productivity depends on accurate and timely detection to allow for appropriate intervention. This webinar will present an overview of worker fatigue and how it may…
