Webinar description:

Fatigue Management - Too Tired for Safety Jason Kumagai, MSc, CHFP, CCPE, PMP

We have all had moments where we have struggled to stay awake.  Maybe you started watching that movie only to wake up during the credits?  Perhaps you snuck in a nap at work?  You may have even nodded off during the drive home, placing yourself and others at significant safety risk.  Researchers, safety specialists and some companies are beginning to recognize that workplace fatigue is another form of impairment, much like distracted driving or drunk driving, which requires risk mitigation.  

This webinar will provide individual strategies workers can take to maximize their own energy and get more sleep.  The session will also discuss some of the control mechanisms and elements of a Fatigue Risk Management System that companies can introduce to maximize safety and performance while minimizing the effects of fatigue.

Jason Kumagai is the Principal Consultant at OPTIMAL FiT Inc. based in Calgary Alberta.   He brings over 20 years of experience in Human Factors / Ergonomics across many industry sectors, including oil & gas, defense, rail, road transportation and healthcare. Jason has worked with companies to develop and implement Fatigue Risk Management Systems and has assisted with the development of Industry Fatigue Risk Management Guidelines.  Jason was President for the Canadian College for the Certification of Professional Ergonomists, and held the position of President of the Prairie and Northern Region of ACE.
