Industry Spotlight: Kronos for Energy

For employers in the oil and gas industry, fatigue is more than a matter of “a bad night’s sleep.” 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. Kronos helps support compliance with these guidelines through a workforce management solution designed to address the unique demands of the oil and gas industry.
