Nearly 25% of workers at a plant risk fatigue

Fatigue Training courses are availableNearly twenty-five percent of workers at Adelaide’s desalination plant are at a high risk of fatigue, while nearly two-fifths of workers are at a moderate risk.

The union representative said that the workers are subjected to lengthy hours of work, occupational bullying, and stress. The project is allegedly huge and it has enormous amounts of pressure behind.

Many workers were apparently often found to be working upwards to seventy hours a week.  Long hours coupled with workplace bullying is apparently the major cause of stress at the plant.

A report found that nearly forty percent of six hundred surveyed workers were found to be at moderate risk of lack of sleep and fatigue.

The Adelaide Aqua SA Water and construction union compiled the report.
