Worksafe NZ Reminds Us Of The Risks Of Sleep Deprivation
Fatigue and sleep deprivation have numerous possible risks for workers and employers which is why WorkSafe New Zealand recently urged all workers to take stock of how much sleep they are actually getting.
Through its Chief Executive Nicole Rosie, WorkSafe New Zealand reminded workers to ensure they get enough sleep because fatigue and sleep deprivation can compromise safety and health, not only for the sleep deprived worker themselves but even others on the work site.
Rosie said with Daylight Saving it was a perfect time to check the amount of sleep we’re getting and ensure we’re healthy and safe at work by being well rested.
She highlighted that tired and fatigued people are 30 per cent more likely to have a workplace accident. This should be enough of an incentive for workers and businesses to manage fatigue and the associated risks.
