It also increases the rate of productivity in several ways. Workers are healthier and happier, resulting in less time off work. Also with fewer accidents, workers are more productive and spend less time off the job.
Effective fatigue management can decrease the cost of general maintenance in terms of human resources. It lowers absenteeism and staff turnover.
