Guidelines for developing and implementing a fatigue management policy in forestry

The purpose of this guidance material is to assist Forestry industry participants to identify assess and manage the risks associated with Fatigue. This document provides a structured approach to the development of a Fatigue Risk management system including a fatigue policy, risk assessment tools and risk-based control options to manage fatigue. A series of case studies are used to illustrate how Fatigue Risk Management methods explained in this document may be applied in a Forestry context. The examples are generic in nature and not intended as a template for businesses to adopt.

LITA recently applied to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to deliver two fatigue risk management units. Once approval was obtained, LITA will deliver the two one-day units. This will further equip you in developing and implementing your own fatigue management policy.
