The New South Wales Mine Safety Advisory Council has issued a fatigue risk management chart.

The chart sets out the contributing factors that can result in fatigue on the job such as long commute times, night work and shift work.

The release of this chart follows the call for changes on how the mining industry deals with fatigue, in particular stating that the guidelines should take commuting time into mine fatigue management.

This chart also explains the risks surrounding fatigue and provides a detailed outline of the ways in which these can be managed and controlled.
