Fatigue Policy & Procedure


          NZ's Health & Safety at Work Act 2015, requires employers to mitigate the risk of fatigue in the workplace.  FRMS can help you to create your Fatigue Management policies and procedures.  

          We have found that one of the most overwhelming areas of risk mitigation for many companies is in regards to fatigue management.  It need not be the case.  The first step is to look at current practices and the needs of the business.

          Review of current Fatigue Management Policy and Procedures
