Negative effects of Fatigue in your political work place

Fatigue management plays an important part in your office, but there are dire consequences when fatigue affects the office that is running the country. Professor Ron Grunstein from the University of Sydney says that “even the most talented and gifted people can get by indefinitely on little or no sleep is a myth”. Margaret Thatcher, the former British Prime minister has been caught dozing and even falling asleep face in podium at a Tory Conference. Tony Blair’s arrhythmia was attributed to his 4 hours a night sleep and a lot of coffee. Even the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear meltdown was attributed to the 100-hour week schedule.
With elections looming around the corner, David Penberthy from the Australian believes one of the major factors is that Kevin Rudd has not had a decent sleep in about four years while Tony Abbott has not had much to do for two. Labor circles have long criticized that unsustainable workload and sleeping habits. Last year November, a 6-day trip equaled out to 3 hours of sleep each night.
