Managing fatigue is a key element of journey management, especially for long-distance travel.
Fatigue management focuses on the factors of a job such as duration, level of fatigue prior to the job and the predicted fatigue level that the worker may sit at.
One of the key parts of the GetHomeSafe solution for the transport sector is a layered approach to welfare monitoring and journey management. The additional journey management features of fatigue management allow for additional safety measures to keep your workers safe and encourage them to take rests or seek alternative fatigue solutions before they continue their travels.
Approval Processes and Risk Assessments
One of our most popular features in the transport sector is our approvals and risk assessments function. The ability to customise which jobs require approvals and which require risk assessments is manageable through the GetHomeSafe web portal.
A great example of those that use this function is those that travel long distances every day. The ability to review and approve a welfare profile with risk assessments creates an automated process to determine the level of risk involved with each journey.
