Effective Fatigue Risk Management

TS120 | 2 days

Having made initial progress and implemented fatigue risk management, what’s next? Operators and regulators are asking, how do we ensure that fatigue risk is being effectively managed?

Since the implementation of EASA ORO.FTL, Air Operators have been operating to the EASA flight and duty time limitations and managing fatigue risk. Managers, the fatigue safety acting group (FSAG) and crew have been trained in how to meet their specific fatigue risk management responsibilities, and most operators have a crew fatigue reporting system in place.

This course will enable you to evaluate the maturity and effectiveness of fatigue risk management in your Air Operation. Practical guidance is provided on how to make improvements, including evaluating your FRM processes, engaging colleagues and embedding effective fatigue risk management.

How will this course benefit me?

Delivered by our fatigue management experts this course will provide guidance on how to take fatigue risk management in your operation to the next level.

From this course you will be able to: 

  • Explain effective FRM, so that your operation can reap the benefits
  • Explain recent development in FRM, including scientific advances and regulatory changes, to ensure your FRM is up to date
  • Identify strategies to build a more effective FRM in your organisation 


Key areas of focus

  • Developing a fatigue dashboard and suite of fatigue safety performance indicators (SPIs)
  • Assessing your current FRM processes using validated tools, and identifying improvements
  • Understanding new developments in fatigue science, and how this can be used to inform your FRM
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of your controls for fatigue
  • Embedding a safety culture to support fatigue reporting
  • Interpreting and integrating fatigue data from multiple sources
  • Avoiding mistakes when implementing fatigue risk management

Frequently asked questions

I have previously attended fatigue management training, why would I attend this course?

This course has been specifically designed for people experienced in fatigue risk management, who are looking to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of their program. By working through real examples of the challenges other operators have overcome, and by workshopping the hurdles you are facing, you will develop a practical action plan for how to take fatigue risk management to the next level in your operation.

We are not looking to submit an FRM for regulatory approval to work outside of ORO.FTL. Is it worth my while attending this course?

The majority of operators manage fatigue within an SMS, or an FRM, and without seeking to work outside of the limits. The course is relevant to all operators.

Fatigue risk management seems like it is for large operators – how will this course help my small operation?

Improving fatigue risk management can seem daunting, particularly for smaller operators. However, one of the key tenets of fatigue risk management is that it should be proportional to the size, nature of operations, and the level of risk exposure. Thus, fatigue risk management has comparable benefits for large and small operator.
