Fatigue, and its impact on safety, is the focus for the 10th International Conference on Managing Fatigue, scheduled for March 20 – 23, 2017, in San Diego, where panel discussions and presentations will concentrate on the theme, “Managing Fatigue to Improve Safety, Wellness, and Effectiveness.”
The conference series provides a forum for research updates and discussions among members of the fatigue management community.
As an event sponsor, and advocate for the reduction of fatigue-related transportation accidents, the National Transportation Safety Board will have a robust presence at the conference with employees participating in panel discussions and a keynote address by National Transportation Safety Board Member Christopher Hart, whose tenure as the agency’s Chairman ended Wednesday.
Fatigue is cited as either a probable cause, contributing factor or finding in 20 percent of NTSB major investigations. The NTSB has issued more than 200 safety recommendations to address the problem of fatigue in transportation.
