Fatigue in the Workplace Can Lead to Injured Workers

Do you often find yourself tired while working?

Do you work long shifts that require a high level of physical activity?

Do you get the recommended amount of sleep per night?

According to the National Center of Biotechnology Information, “Fatigue is a workplace hazard and can be associated with safety and health of the worker. It affects the health and safety of both the employee and his/her colleagues.” Are you at risk of falling asleep on the job?
