Employees often make light of how little sleep they get on a regular basis. An over-worked, over-tired condition has become the norm for many employees in the workplace. Getting a good night's sleep is not just a novelty; it's a necessity. The effects of fatigue are far-reaching and can have an adverse impact on our work output, as well all areas of our lives. This class will enhance the knowledge of the occupational health professional to detect work fatigue symptoms before a bad outcome occurs.

Identify three fatigue-related incidents for which people are at risk.
Name two effects that fatigue has in the workplace.
Identify the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea in employees.
Identify three symptoms of fatigue.
Describe sleep physiology and how alterations in sleep patterns change over an individual’s lifespan.
