Fatigue Risk Management Solutions
In-Scope Solutions works to assist organizations in designing and implementing customized, practical best practice strategies for risk based fatigue management. Typically a gap analysis process is used with consultation to design and implement strategies.
Corporate Fatigue Risk Assessments
On-site fatigue risk assessments provide quantifiable data demonstrating key areas in which fatigue risks are highest in your operations. Specific strategies can then developed and tailored to identified risks and existing safety management systems. Risk assessments can be conducted on-site or via consultation.
In-Scope will work directly with your health and safety management team to educate, identify, and create strategies for controlling fatigue risks in the workplace.
Strategy Development and Design
Fatigue strategies should match the level of risk inherent in operations. A one size fits all solution is rarely comprehensive enough to have an impact. Strategies must also be in alignment with existing safety management systems to be effective and have long-lasting impact. In-Scope can help design the strategies that will have an impact.
Creating a Fatigue Risk Management Strategy (FRMS) or even a Fit For Work Policy for fatigue is not likely to be effective if it is not properly implemented. To truly have an impact on fatigue hazards, strategies must integrate into current operations and mesh well with your organization’s safety culture. In-Scope will help you to create comprehensive change management strategies to fully integrate your FRMS.
