Fatigue at work can lead to work related injuries.

Fatigue is an extreme feeling of tiredness or lack of energy, often described as being exhausted.  Fatigue is something that lasts even when a person seems to be getting enough sleep

The three types of fatigue are Transient, Cumulative and Circadian.

  • Transient Fatigue is acute fatigue brought on by extreme sleep restriction or extended hours awake within a one or two day period
  • Cumulative Fatigue is brought on by overexertion / overwork or more repetitive activity than the body can tolerate after a period of time
  • Circadian fatigue affects your body’s rhythm which can be brought on by many factors, including sleep deprivation, working long or irregular hours, shift work or even by being on call.
