APGA Fatigue Management Guidelines and Toolkit

APGA has prepared the Fatigue Risk Management Guidelines to encourage the adoption of uniform fatigue management practices across the industry.

The guidelines were developed following a landmark year-long study involving more than 400 employees working at a pipeline construction site in Queensland. Participants wore rest and activity monitors to collect data on their sleep/wake characteristics and they were also tested for neurocognitive performance on each day of the 28-day work roster.

The Fatigue Management Study was undertaken by TMS Consulting. The TMS Consulting – Fatigue Management Study – Australian Pipeline Industry v1 is available. Chief Executive Officer Helen Wood talks about the study here. The full study is available to members only after log-in.
