Understanding the potential contributors to fatigue in your schedule is a key component of effective fatigue risk management. Whilst some large organisations have this capability in-house, bio-mathematical fatigue models can be expensive and require expertise to use effectively.
One way in which bio-mathematical models can enhance FRM is by assessing the impact that changes to schedules or alternative schedule designs have on fatigue. For example, fatigue models can help to answer the following questions:
An analysis of your schedules to assess alternative scheduling options provides you with an in-depth understanding of the levels of schedule-related fatigue. We have extensive experience of using bio-mathematical models, and have developed a suite of metrics that give you a detailed assessment of schedule related-fatigue. Using these metrics, we can work with you to develop Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs) for schedule-related fatigue, for ongoing tracking within your FRM.
