Fatigue Management in the Oil & Gas Industry
Did you know that fatigue costs more than $136 billion per year in lost productivity, 84 percent of which is due to reduced performance at work, rather than absences?
For employers in the oil and gas industry, fatigue is more than a matter of “a bad night’s sleep.” Fatigued employees can mean serious occupational risks, as well as billions of dollars annually in lost productivity, absenteeism, and other expenses. Recognizing this problem, the American Petroleum Institute (API) has developed ANSI/API Recommended Practice 755: Fatigue Risk Management Systems for Personnel in the Refining and Petrochemical Industries.
An important part of this recommended practice is its guidelines for hours of service.
Kronos helps support compliance with these guidelines through a workforce management solution designed to address the unique demands of the oil and gas industry.
- Reduce the costs that result from worker fatigue, including accidents, injuries, and absenteeism
- Enhance compliance with ANSI/API RP 755 by automatically applying Hours of Service Guidelines to employee scheduling processes
