  • Fatigue Management in the Oil and Gas Industry

    For employers in the oil and gas industry, fatigue is a major challenge. Fatigued employees can mean serious occupational risks, as well as billions of dollars annually in lost productivity, absenteeism,and other expenses. Recognizing this problem, the American Petroleum Institute (API) has developed ANSI/API Recommended Practice 755: Fatigue Risk Management Systems for Personnel in the Refining and Petrochemical Industries. An important part of this recommended practice is its guidelines for hours of service.

    This paper describes the challenges with employee fatigue and addresses how Kronos solutions can help to minimize fatigue by streamlining processes for complying with the hours of service guidelines recommended by API.
