Fatigue Risk Assessment

Gain visibility to hidden risk factors to see the full impact of fatigue and distraction on your operations

See the invisible risk of fatigue and distraction in your operations by implementing a Fatigue Risk Assessment. Caterpillar experts can help you make quick improvements and create a long-term plan for fatigue risk management in the workplace.The Fatigue Risk Assessment is a three-phased approach to bring visibility to risk, instant mitigation and data to drive improvement.

1. On-Site Manager Workshop
Empower leaders with the knowledge and awareness necessary to understand the sources of fatigueand distraction and how they impact performance.

2. 30-90 Day Intensive Data Collection
Implement technology-enabled safety solutions that reveal the scale of your fatigue and distraction risk.

  • Driver Safety System (DSS) – in-cab monitoring of fatigue and distraction
  • Cat® Smartband, powered by Fatigue Science – wearable technology to identify quality and quantity of sleep and prime times of fatigue
  • Fatigue Avoidance Scheduling Tool (FAST) – fatigue analysis software used to identify areas of fatigue risk and develop optimal work schedules

3. Report-Out to Management
Management receives a detailed, analytic report that clearly depicts the scope of risk in your operations.Caterpillar’s fatigue expert will correlate data from the DSS, Cat Smartband and FAST with data from the following equipment solutions:

  • Cat® MineStar™
  • Cat Vital Information Management System (VIMS)
  • Cat EMSolutions

Gather multiple data points to see and manage fatigue and distraction risk.
