Fatigue in the mining industry can lead to human error, physical fatigue and work-related stress which negatively affects the health and well-being of workers. Not only can this lead to accidents, but it can also cause problems with mining equipment. Instead of using paper forms when performing fatigue risk assessments at different mining operations, workplace health and safety officials and work environment managers can use this app to quickly and easily complete their reviews using a smartphone or tablet.
Fatigue is a state of impairment that can include physical and/or mental elements associated with lower alertness and reduced performance. The Fatigue Risk Factors mobile app makes it easy to assess potential risks at mines. One of the keys to effective risk management is to properly assess the risks arising from a hazard. Assessing hazards related to fatigue means looking carefully at the identified fatigue risk factors to decide whether they have been eliminated or adequately controlled. Once fatigue factors at the mine have been evaluated, the fatigue management plan can be created.
