Fatigue Risk Assessment, Fatigue Mitigation Technology



Assess Risk Utilizing Fatigue Technology

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

Fatigue and distraction are nearly invisible risk factors that impact your operations daily. With technology-enabled solutions that give you the power to visualise and quantify the prevalence of fatigue and distraction on your job sites Caterpillar experts can help you make immediate improvements and create a long-term plan for performance excellence.


A Fatigue Risk Assessment (FRA) integrates technology, education and culture to help you see the risk of fatigue and distraction in your operations.


1. On-Site Manager Workshop

On-site manager workshops empower leaders with the knowledge and awareness necessary to understand the sources of fatigue and distraction and how they impact performance. While operator workshops provide fatigue education and engage workers in the fatigue mitigation and safety management processes.

2. Intensive Data Collection

Implementing technology-enabled fatigue mitigation solutions like the Cat®Driver Safety System (DSS), Cat Smartband and Fatigue Avoidance Scheduling Tool (FAST) during the assessment period reveals the scale of your fatigue and distraction risk and provides you with a baseline for improvement.

3. Report-Out to Management

A detailed, analytic report that clearly depicts the scope of risk in your operations is provided to management with data analysed by a Caterpillar fatigue expert. The data from the DSS, Cat Smartband and FAST can be correlated with available equipment data for a comprehensive risk and opportunity analysis.
