Fatigue: A Risk Too Often Overlooked

Everyone has done it at one time or another: skip on sleep to meet a deadline or complete a job. Many workers regularly work overtime, sometimes for several days in a row. Fatigue affects our body and our mind; therefore, it also affects our work. Tired employees put their health and safety at risk as well as the safety of customers and colleagues. Over time, people who regularly get 6 hours or less of sleep will find their reaction time has slowed from a quarter of a second to almost 4 seconds.
