In our 24/7 culture, sleep is being challenged.

As the demands on the global workforce increasingly stretch the boundaries of employee work hours, there is a need to provide sleep education and training for ALL corporate employees, including those who traditionally were thought to work “normal” hours.

Employee sleep is a corporate leadership issue. Why? Because sleep directly impacts work performance.

Scientific research reveals that sleep deprivation directly impacts every cognitive and physiological function imperative for peak employee performance. Sleep impacts employee performance, productivity, absenteeism, turnover rates, profitability, safety, and health care costs.

Sleep deprivation is a risk management issue, requiring corporate management to take action.

Sleep Disorder Screening

Sleep Disorder Screening

Many sleep disorders are undiagnosed and untreated. One of the most common sleep disorders, especially among shiftworkers, is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is a sleep disorder in which there is an obstruction of the airway during sleep, causing a cessation in breathing, resulting in highly disrupted sleep and increased sleepiness and fatigue during waking hours. Employees with untreated sleep apnea are a greater risk and cost for your company because:

  • They are at least twice as likely to have a fatigue-related accident as the rest of the population
  • They incur health costs twice as high as other patients
  • They spend twice as much time in the hospital
  • They have twice the hypertension risk and triple the heart disease risk

By implementing a program that screens for and then treats sleep apnea, 24/7 operations can:

  • Reduce absenteeism associated with apnea-induced fatigue and medical conditions
  • Improve performance with a better-rested, healthier and more alert workforce
  • Cut medical costs
  • Reduce fatigue-related accidents on the job and while commuting

If this is your situation:

  • Have high absenteeism rates, and excessive health care costs
  • Suspect that a significant number of employees are sleepy on the job
  • Have a high rate of incidents and suspect that are human error or fatigue related
  • Need to implement a comprehensive fatigue risk management system, and to include sleep disorders screening in it

This is how CIRCADIAN can help you:

CIRCADIAN offers a proven, cost-effective way to screen for sleep apnea. We set up the entire screening and treatment program and manage the overall process. CIRCADIAN ensures accurate and consistent results.

CIRCADIAN program is confidential for employees. This encourages greater employee participation and higher treatment rates. For those identified at risk for sleep apnea, CIRCADIAN provides counseling and referral to certified sleep specialists for evaluation and treatment. Your company's medical plan generally covers screening and treatment.

Fatigue Accident-Incident Investigation with FACTS™

Accident/Incedent Analysis with FACTS™

Fatigue Accident/Incident Causation Testing System (FACTS™)  is an expert web-based system which calculates the probability of whether a person was impaired by fatigue at the time of an accident or incident.

Fatigue does not discriminate and significantly affects every type of 24/7 operation. A mine haul truck operator loses attention; a control room operator fails to recognize a pending safety-critical event; a pilot forgets to trim the flaps on final approach. Incidents, injuries and costly errors happen daily due to fatigue.

Yet, because there is no biochemical test for fatigue, fatigue tends to be under-reported and overlooked in incident investigations and its true costs--in dollars and lives--are often unknown or ignored.


Have an accident or incident you want to test with FACTS?

SIGN UP FOR A FREE TRIAL TODAY



FACTS helps every manager across your organization answer the following questions:

  • What is the probability that an individual was fatigued at the time of an incident/accident or operational deviation?
  • What was the source of excess fatigue risk (if any)? 
  • What percent of my company’s incidents/accidents/operational deviations are caused by a fatigue impaired employee? 
  • What is the cost of employee fatigue impairment at my company?

FACTS Results

Know the Cost of Fatigue

We know that fatigue is one of the most pervasive causes of human error-related accidents, incidents, and injuries –costing billions of dollars each year. Yet, when asked most companies don’t know how much fatigue-related accidents are costing them each year. 

FACTS will allow your company to objectively record and monitor the true cost of fatigue incidents throughout your global operations.
