Lead researcher:  Professor Jillian Dorrian

Consistent with a continual improvement approach to fatigue management, this project will provide early evaluation and support the implementation of South Australian forestry industry’s new fatigue guideline to contribute to policy enhancement and facilitate tailoring to individual operations. To support their reciprocal duty of care to manage their fatigue, this project will provide forestry employers and employees tailored fatigue management strategies (and ‘myth-busting’ of ineffectual or harmful strategies) better suited to forestry operations. These will feed back into policy, tools, and education in order to reduce fatigue related errors, incidents, and accidents, and improve worker health and safety.
