Did you know 3 out of every 4 people consider fatigue to be a major problem within the construction industry? It’s a sector which requires skill and concentration so the idea that many workers are affected by this is concerning. Our in-house and on-site training focuses on the individual’s wellbeing, ensuring they are fully competent in their specialised areas, thus making their designated tasks more manageable.

With over 40 years in the training sector, London & Kent Safety Training AT Ltd provides a range of intensive courses in London, Essex, Kent, Surrey and nationwide for those working in the following areas:

Construction
Haulage
Industrial
Plant
Transport
Utilities
Warehouse

Our curricula includes EUSR, streetwork, plant operator, and health and safety training courses.

Worker Fatigue

Without workers, we wouldn’t have construction. They are the single most important part of the industry but the nature of their work can be strenuous and stressful – factors which lead to fatigue and potential accidents.

‍Health Concerns

‍Construction workers operate in physically demanding circumstances which can take their toll over time. And the concentration required when working with particular machinery can lead to mental exhaustion.

‍Working Hours

‍Overtime or night work can interfere with the body’s natural rhythm. If commuting is added to the equation then a working day may be extended beyond recommended hours.

‍Environment

‍Operating in the following situations can add to worker fatigue:

  • Inhaling hazardous materials or chemicals
  • Operating in extreme temperatures
  • Using vibrating machinery
  • Working in noisy conditions


‍The Individual

‍Construction workers who don’t sleep enough, eat the wrong foods, or lead a generally unhealthy lifestyle will find themselves struggling with fatigue as a result of their choices.

At London & Kent Safety Training, we encourage the understanding of how to avoid fatigue and work in a productive and healthy manner.
