Multi-industry risk management solution

Because our fatigue management software is based on configuration—not customization—it can be tailored to streamline compliance with any risk mitigation program. For example, the software’s highly flexible rules engine can easily accommodate the following industry regulations:

  • Transportation/Trucking:
    • U.S. Hours of Service (HOS) regulations 49 CFR 395
    • Australia’s National Transport Commission Heavy Vehicle Driver Fatigue regulations
  • Canada’s Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service rules
  • Maritime: 46 CFR 8104 sets work hour limits for employees in the marine industry
  • Aviation: FAA mandates and 14 CFR Part 121, which set work hour limits for flight crews

Solution Features:

Proactive monitoring and alerts

EmpCenter Fatigue Management tracks employee hours scheduled and worked, as well as absences and activities performed. Monitoring this data in real time, the solution proactively alerts managers and/or HR personnel when an employee is at risk of exceeding work-hour guidelines. Labor data can be directly entered or seamlessly imported from other systems and employee time clock devices.

Real-time risk assessment

Organizations with sophisticated business risk management strategies can leverage EmpCenter Fatigue Management to calculate precise, dynamic fatigue scores for each affected employee. Tracking and reporting on these scores delivers much greater insight into the depth and prevalence of employee fatigue across your entire workforce and helps fine-tune prevention techniques.

Scheduling accuracy

Our fatigue management software offers several ways to ensure that employees with heightened fatigue risk are carefully scheduled, if at all. When paired with EmpCenter Advanced Scheduler, you can prohibit managers from scheduling potentially fatigued staff, or require them to acknowledge the risks before overriding an alert. Eligibility can be configured down to the activity level, providing maximum flexibility.

Call-out prioritization

Another advantage of pairing EmpCenter Fatigue Management with Advanced Scheduler is that you can automatically factor fatigue risk levels into the call-out sequence for filling an open shift. This allows you to take advantage of highly efficient automated call-outs while ensuring that only the safest employees are notified of additional shifts.

Fatigue impact assessment

Bundling EmpCenter Fatigue Management with EmpCenter Analytics makes it easy to analyze the impact of employee fatigue on costs, quality of work, and other performance measures. These insights can then help your team refine scheduling and staffing practices to reduce the ill effects of employee fatigue and strengthen enterprise risk management.
