Why Should you Attend
For a facility to operate safely and efficiently 24/7, it is necessary to apply shift working best practices. Multiple-shift operation poses a challenge because of the potential for fatigue and disconnects caused by the fact that the personnel are changing every few hours. This can result in a significantly increased risk of incidents and operational problems such as reduced throughput, poor communication and increased levels of waste.
If you have a shiftwork operation, then you have shiftwork issues. These issues stretch far beyond "What schedule should we be working." This presentation will provide a broad overview of those topics most important to shiftwork managers as well as the shift workers themselves.
