Fatigue management live stream - 9 October

Professor Drew Dawson is nationally and internationally recognised for his contributions to the scientific community and industry in the areas of sleep and fatigue research, organisational psychology and human behaviour, industrial relations negotiations, and the human implications of hours of work.

Professor Dawson has worked extensively with the aviation, manufacturing, retail, entertainment, transportation and mining sectors in Australia, and is a world-renowned expert on fatigue in the workplace. He has instigated fatigue management programs, developed shift work and fatigue policy, undertaken pre-employment assessments, and facilitated shift work education sessions. Drew also regularly presents at national and international conferences and has provided expert witness testimony in many fatigue-related court cases.

As director of the internationally recognised Appleton Institute, he oversees basic and applied research into the effects of shift work and sleep loss on the health and well-being of employees. Basic research programs are focused on the interactions of the sleep and circadian systems, the effects of sleep loss and the ways people protect themselves against fatigue-related errors.

Professor Dawson will engage us in an online discussion around the physical health implications of ongoing fatigue, the latest research on how shift work affects the body and explore strategies to minimise fatigue and improve the psychological and physical health of the workforce.
