INSTRUCTOR:  Clinton Marquardt, Human Fatigue Specialist

“The issue of fatigue risk management has been of particular interest to our clients across all industry sectors in our province. Clinton offered our group his unique perspective and expertise in understanding this critical workplace topic in an interactive, participatory and enjoyable way. Using case examples and the most up-to-date scientific information, Clinton made our workshop both engaging and unforgettable. We look forward to working together again in the near future.” Christina Marshall – Manager, Occupational Health and Safety at Safety Services Newfoundland Labrador, Canada

COURSE HIGHLIGHTS:  Everyone feels fatigued now and then. It’s a normal biological state that tells us when we need to sleep. But when it happens in safety critical, high risk, or influential situations, it can lead to negative operational and financial outcomes with often dangerous results. Human fatigue impacts the health, safety and productivity of the 24/7 workforce. It can lead to accidents, incidents, and mistakes that can be costly. This course is designed to provide executives, managers and supervisors with the practical tools and approaches to effectively manage sleep-related fatigue in the workplace and keep employees healthy, safe and productive. Clinton will teach this course from a safety management perspective.
