Fatigue in the Workplace: Innovation Technology to Help Measure, Monitor and Mitigate Injury Risk

Miners can be impacted by fatigue, whether it is from poor sleep, over exertion, heat stress, or inadequate food choices.  The panelists will speak about fitness, sleep, heat stress, and nutrition in the context of fatigue and profile innovative technologies that can be used to measure, monitor and mitigate fatigue in the workplace. After a short presentation by each panelist the floor will be opened up for an interactive discussion.
