About this item
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.
