Tired all the time? CCS launches survey to explore worker fatigue in construction

  • 4 Jun 2019

To understand how the issue of worker fatigue is being addressed in the industry, the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Best Practice Hub is running a survey to gain a real understanding of the extent to which this is a problem and how it is being tackled.

Worker fatigue is often an overlooked hazard in the construction industry, despite the fact that fatigue is a serious health and safety risk in construction.

Fatigue has the potential to significantly impair physical and cognitive capacities, as well as having a damaging effect on the mental health of our workforce.

The inability to respond and react promptly can be highly detrimental across any type of construction activity – leading to errors, near misses, injuries and even death.

 The Scheme is inviting everyone working across the entire industry to complete this short survey here.

The survey closes on 9 August, and results will be used to help inform the Scheme’s Spotlight on… worker fatigue national campaign, due to be published in the Autumn.
