All heavy vehicles with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) over 12 tonnes and buses with 12 seats (9 in NSW) will need to comply with fatigue management legislation. Under OH&S legislation employers have a duty of care responsibility to provide a safe workplace and safe systems of work and employees must be mentally and physically fit for work and work in a safe and responsible manner.
There are 3 categories of fatigue management training;
- Standard hours
- Basic fatigue management (BFM)
- Advanced fatigue management (AFM)
Everyone who is a part of the supply chain will need to conduct a risk assessment to identify and measure potential RISKS with fatigue in the supply chain and develop strategies to manage the risk to ensure a safe workplace.
To understand how to recognise and prevent fatigue becoming a hazard for you, it is important to look at the causes. Fatigue and tiredness are signals from our body that we need sleep. Just like when our body needs food we get hungry and when our body needs water we get thirsty. Willpower cannot overcome these physical signals.
Online basic fatigue management training courses are available for employers and employees. Basic fatigue management online is the most convenient way to become compliant with the fatigue management legislation.
