Workers with Sleep Deprivation Could Jeopardize Safety at Work

According to the National Safety Council 1 in 3 workers don’t get enough sleep. What many don’t realize is there can be dangerous consequences to working while fatigued. Workers with sleep issues are 1.5 times more likely to sustain an injury.

Fatigue includes feeling tired, having low energy, and having a difficult time completing tasks.  Fatigue can reduce mental capacity and productivity. The National Safety Council reports approximately 13% of work injuries are attributed to sleep issues, and more than 16% if fatal crashes involve a drowsy driver.
