People working in the construction industry are at high risk of suffering from fatigue. The workers on site are at particular risk because of their demanding workloads, physical strain and prolonged working hours. The risk of falling asleep at your desk is one thing, but it's another to be nodding off while you're operating a crane.
The construction industry has a unique challenge when it comes to COVID-19 management and contact-tracing requirements: having to manage a highly transient workforce. Construction workers often work across multiple sites and under the management of multiple General Contractors - where someone works on a Monday is often completely different to where they will be on a Wednesday. This means that the vast majority of current contract-tracing solutions don't actually work in construction.
We know that increased worker engagement with safety leads to better safety outcomes. Safety-first companies are already actively trying to increase workforce engagement and attitudes toward safety by having regular safety training/meetings, running employee recognition programs and having more management involvement in site safety activities.
