CIRCADIAN® is the global leader in providing 24/7 workforce performance and safety solutions for every type of business that operates around the clock. Since 1983 we have helped to grow the 24/7 economy by working with thousands of shift work operations.
Flexible use of the 168 hours in the week is required to meet seasonal and market driven fluctuations in demand. Juggling between shift operations throughout the week requires a sophisticated management of the workforce and shift scheduling to maintain employee morale and productive operations.
The insatiable demand for raw materials to meet the growing global economy drives the mining and primary metals industry. The mining must be conducted around-the-clock to be economically competitive. The downstream production of pure metals from ore requires blast furnaces, which by their nature, are a never-put-out-the-fire operation. These industries require a skilled and attentive 24/7 workforce operating expensive equipment in hazardous environments.
Finding the right balance between logistical efficiency and employee fatigue is a constant challenge across all modes of transportation. For 25 years CIRCADIAN® has worked across every transportation sector to find creative win-win solutions to dispatching, scheduling, training and staffing issues.
High level of automation in most process manufacturing operations makes human monitoring highly monotonous. Control room design, workforce policies, and fatigue management are key to employee alertness.
The risks of fatigue in the nursing industry has led the Joint Commission, a health care accreditation body, to issue a directive to all healthcare organizations undertake implement a fatigue risk management plan.
