Safety professionals: Wearables can help mitigate the effects of job site fatigue
from Construction Dive
In the construction industry, the problem of worker fatigue is more than just academic. The National Safety Council in October reported that 100 percent of the construction workers they surveyed had at least one risk factor for on-the-job fatigue and that only 75 percent believed being overtired on a construction site was a safety issue. However, 98 percent of employers said fatigued workers did pose safety risks. And while 96 percent of employers said it was unsafe to drive while overly tired, only 78 percent of employees agreed that it was.
