Fatigue management is becoming a growing area of interest and research in Australia mainly due to the mining boom. As it becomes more a topic of interest this can only benefit other workers such police, nurses and other shift workers. That's why I started my blog: http://fatiguemanagementblog.wordpress.com/
so we could share experiences. Would be great to hear from anyone on how they manage their fatigue from varying shifts.
Thank you for your posting. Indeed, fatigue management is a growing area of concern for employees, employers, and policy makers. And, industries from all sectors are interested including mining, aviation, health care, transportation, and the military.
With colleagues at Harvard, we are holding a symposium entitled:
Sleep and Shift Work: Optimizing Productivity and Health Management in the 24/7 Global Economy in Boston, MA on September 27-28, 2012.

We would appreciate it if you forward the link and the program announcement to interested folks in your country.
Thank you again for your posting and we at Medhelp.org look forward to the on-going dialogue about this important topic.

Hi. I am a student. My major is about Occupational health and safety. That is, this topic is very interesting. Although I do not have experience to manage fatigue yet, I give some thing as reference if you want. I have some points as suggestion as follows: The first, Should be make more discuss between the employers and employees to get opinions from the employees which know the most clearly the situation, risks from the workplace as well. The second, schedule of the office should be fit between the capacity of the workers and works which are their responsibility.
