The National Safety Council (NSC) released a new report on fatigue at work. The three-part report uses survey data to determine the causes and consequences of fatigue in safety-sensitive industries. Transportation was a particular high point in the data: “97 percent of the employers in the transportation industry feel the impact of fatigue – the highest among all safety-critical industries surveyed. 66 percent reported decreases in productivity and 45 percent said they had experienced safety incidents.”
