Book Description :

Human Fatigue Risk Management: Improving Safety in the Chemical Processing Industry will teach you everything you need to know about mitigating the risk of fatigued workers in a plant or refinery. Human fatigue has been directly linked to several major disasters, prompting the API RP 755 guidelines to be released. This book will help users follow API RP 755 and/or implement a fatigue risk management system in their organization. Susan Murray, a recognized expert in the field of sleep deprivation as related to high hazard industries, has written this book to be useful for HSE managers, plant and project managers, occupational safety professionals, and engineers/managers in the chemical processing industry. As scheduling of shifts is an important factor in reducing fatigue and therefore accident rates, this book will help users prove the benefits of more frequent staff rotation and implement an ideal scheduling plan. It goes beyond API RP 755, offering more detail and better understanding of why certain measures for managing fatigue are beneficial to a company. This book provides examples of how the theory can be put into practice, and is a simple, digestible book for managers who are keen to address human factor issues at their workplace and raise safety standards. Covers sleep, sleep disorders and the consequences of fatigue as related to high-hazard industries Helps improve safety standards at the plant level Provides information on complying with API RP 755 and related OSHA 29CFR1910 articles Relates fatigue and human performance to accidents, helping you make a case for implementing a human fatigue risk management policy; which in turn will prevent loss of property and life

Book Description :

"This report describes our second attempt to use a quantitative, applied model of fatigue and well-accepted fatigue countermeasures in the context of operational risk management (ORM). The report discusses ORM in terms of the identification of fatigue hazards, assessment of fatigue risks, analysis of fatigue-risk control measures, possible fatigue-risk control decisions, implementation of fatigue risk controls, and the supervision and review of the fatigue ORM process. It builds upon and extends a previous fatigue ORM effort (2005) by combining the occurrence of five specific fatigue indicators with fatigue model predictions of cognitive performance effectiveness (PE). The five indicators were the amount of sleep in the last 24 hours, the cumulative sleep debt, the number of hours awake since the last major sleep period, time of day, and the amount of jet lag or shift lag. In the standard Air Force ORM method, the risk associated with a potential mishap is measured in terms of the probability that a mishap will occur and the potential severity of that mishap. The Fatigue-Performance Assessment System software should automate this process in such a manner as to augment other, required AF ORM documents."--Report documentation page.

Book Description :

The aviation community, in which the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO) play leading roles, is hard at work in bringing aviation into the 21st Century. In doing so, the United States and Europe have taken proactive steps forward in introducing modernization, particularly in moving towards more efficient air traffic management systems within NextGen and SESAR. Elsewhere, in the fields of personnel licensing, rules of the air, accident investigation and aeronautical charts and information, significant strides are being made in moving from mere regulation to implementation and assistance calculated to make all ICAO member States self sufficient in international civil aviation. However, these objectives can be achieved only if the aviation industry has a sustained understanding of the legal and regulatory principles applying to the various areas of air navigation. This book provides that discussion. Some of the subjects discussed in this book are: sovereignty in airspace; flight information and air defence identification zones; rules of the air; personnel licensing; meteorological services; operations of aircraft; air traffic services; accident and incident investigation; aerodromes; efficiency aspects of aviation and environmental protection; aeronautical charts and information; the carriage of dangerous goods; and NextGen and SESAR . Except for NextGen and SESAR, these subjects form the titles of the Annexes to the Chicago Convention that particularly involve the rights and liabilities of the key players involved in air navigation.

Book Description :

This document describes the authors' first attempt to use a quantitative, applied model of fatigue and well-accepted fatigue countermeasures in the context of operational risk management. To identify fatigue hazards, they listed the known, primary physiological and psychological effects of fatigue. These effects were aligned approximately with the cognitive and physiological tests shown to be sensitive to the fatigued state. The extrapolation of the listed effects to safety-sensitive jobs was explained through examples. Each effect had the potential to cause harm in military operations and, thus, was a hazard. To assess fatigue risks, they used the applied model of fatigue, SAFTE, to quantify the risks associated with five types of fatigue: physical fatigue, circadian effects, acute fatigue, cumulative fatigue, and chronic fatigue. In terms of fatigue control measures, the best fatigue countermeasure is sleep, which is the only countermeasure that provides recovery. It also reduces the probability that fatigue will have an effect on mission safety and, concomitantly, reduces the exposure to fatigue. When adequate sleep cannot be used to counter fatigue, then one must consider the use of "Go" and "No-Go" adjuncts, including schedule adjustments and pharmacological adjuncts. These adjuncts serve to reduce the severity of fatigue effects or the exposure to fatigue-related risk. All controls except sleep should be viewed as "band-aid" approaches, to be used as a last resort when other controls are insufficient and the mission must be accomplished. Recovery sleep will still be necessary after the other controls have been applied to accomplish the mission.

In this soon-to-be gold-standard text, a distinguished panel of experts provides a comprehensive discussion of the various medical, neurological, psychiatric, and psychological factors underlying fatigue and sleepiness in the workplace and in patients. In reviewing current best practices in managing fatigue and sleepiness conditions to improve workplace safety, the book importantly begins with an overview of fatigue’s definitions and concepts. It then moves into discussing the historical perspective on sleepiness and fatigue, the definitions and classifications of fatigue, and assessments of fatigue in the laboratory and in clinical settings. The book continues by exploring medical causes of fatigue in detail; how medication and recreational agents may result in fatigue; and the treatment of sleep disorders. Additional topics include best practices in the treatment of narcolepsy and hypersomnia, a review of circadian rhythm and fatigue, the treatment of heart failure and improvement in fatigue, and the management of fatigue in hospitalized patients. A major contribution to the field, this invaluable title will be of significant interest to all clinicians concerned with safeguarding safety in the workplace by accurately diagnosing and managing patients with fatigue and sleepiness problems. Researchers will also find this title of great interest.
