Preventing Safety & Health Consequences of Fatigue in the Workplace

Workplace Fatigue Image

In a continuation of our focus on the health and safety aspects of fatigue at work, we recently had a discussion with industrial hygienist Dede Montgomery, who leads up Outreach and Education at the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, OHSU, and the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center. about fatigue at work, the negative safety and health consequences of it, and how to prevent it.

Fatigue at work is an important issue and it seems people are becoming increasingly aware of it. Part of that is because safety and health professionals such as Dede are really putting a lot of effort into getting out there and spreading the word–I’ve seen Dede speaking at many conferences on fatigue and other issues related to worker health and wellness.

So we hope you enjoy the interview below and we’d like to thank Dede for her time, hard work, and knowledge.

Please note that we’re planning on transcribing this interview eventually, and when we do we’ll add that transcript below, but for now we’re offering you the opportunity to watch and listen to the video. And stay tuned for that transcript!

We’ll have that transcript of this conversation for you soon…stay tuned!
