Human fatigue in Transportation
An issue that can be quantified and managed.
Transportation accidents can be considered a daily thing in the mining industry. Although moderation and severity may change, transport -mainly by land- is a sector susceptible to accidents during the work day.
Causes are diverse and multifaceted, from bad protocol and monitoring design, failure to set proper control procedures to lack of supervision of safety measures. However, it is possible to find in all this causes a constant variable: human fatigue. It is present in 80% of truck accidents and responsible for 130 tragedies in Chile every year.
Human fatigue has a PBI annual cost of 2% and can be influenced by occupational, environmental, physiological, personal and social causes. Its effects have an impact on working pace, whose performance can decrease by 18% and concentration by 12%.
In addition, human fatigue has a tangible impact in the reduction of productivity, cost increase, property damage, legal consequences and reputation detriment. In Chile, a company that has high incident rates with fatal consequences can suffer the increase of compulsory insurance (up to 6.8% of total remuneration).
Through the study of human biological behavior, human fatigue can be managed before and after manifesting. This way, its risks can be reduced and fatal accidents can be prevented.
In this context, we launched SOMNI, a monitoring fatigue human management system that works by recollecting different variables such as health, sleep, working hours and behavior and it uses artificial intelligence controls.
- 30%- 40% less work incidents per year.
- Involvement of over 70% of workers.
- Increase of attentiveness and vigilance.
- Performance and productivity enhancements
Human fatigue is affecting your workforce and your business.
PREVENT this from happening by adopting SOMNI.
