Tired and overworked employees cause situations that can put countless lives in peril. Follow these guidelines to keep your organisation safe.

    Your reference to "Identifying employees who struggle with shift work, such as those over age 50," should not be taken literally, as there are more groups apart from those over the age of 50 who cannot cope with the long hours associated with shift work.

    The second point to support this is "Each individual has his or her own tolerance for fatigue-inducing activities."

    To the author here. Please be mindful that a simple example associated with aged of employees can be seen in a negative light. All employees should bee seen as potential for fatigue management planning and not those that are on the other side of 50.
