The Impact of Fatigue in a Control Room

UCDS President Ian Nimmo explains the impact that fatigue can have in a control room. He describes what it is, and how UCDS can help you avoid fatigue for your operators. There are fatigue counter measures your company can take, that UCDS can assist in. Examples of measures include taking breaks, getting fresh air, and not consuming too much caffeine. There are also measures your company can control such as lighting. Sitting in the dark and looking at a screen with too many colors is proven to cause fatigue and eye strains. Our downloadable resource booklets give you advice on hours of service, implementing exercise equipment into work, encouraging healthy sleep patterns for operators, and more.
