Get Ready for Rest

Sleeping In

How much do you sleep every night?

  • A) 8-10 Hours
  • B) 5-7 Hours
  • C) 2-4 Hours
Sleep

If you picked anything but 8-10 hours you probably are not getting enough sleep. This Lack of sleep can lead to long days at work, poor social interactions, and much more. Fatigue can be harmful in very fast paced environments such as warehouse or manufacturing. Lacking sleep can lead to slower reaction times that could be crucial for many jobs, and this can lead to errors. Workers like taxi and bus drivers can suffer from this. The highest rate of an accident is early mornings or after a short night of rest.

How can we prevent this? While you can’t always track workers home and force them to sleep, you can take measures such as taking breaks and educating men and women on better sleep habits so the employees can combat this issue themselves. Another way is to have people working only during the day. If your company is unable to do that; try restricting consecutive days to 5 and night shifts to four. Finally, the quickest and easiest way to prevent fatigue in the workplace is by providing frequent breaks and places to take them.

Sleep Facts:

  • People who work several Jobs get 40 minutes less of sleep per day than those who work one job.
  • Night shift workers are at a 31% higher risk for injury than morning shift workers.
