Webinar Description

Fatigue decreases productivity in the workplace and increases risk of incident and injuries. One meta-analysis found that 13% of workplace injuries could be attributed to employees with sleep problems. Recent NSC surveys show that nearly every American worker reports a risk factor for fatigue, and almost half admit to being sleep deprived. Despite 90% of employers feeling the impact of fatigue in their day to day operations, they often underestimate the financial burden. Sleep deficiency and sleep disorders cost a typical medium-sized employer a million dollars a year in lost productivity, missed days of work, and health care costs. Identifying the causes of fatigue in the workplace and implementing best practices to managing fatigue is an effective way to reduce risk and decrease the financial burden.


Emily Whitcomb joined the National Safety Council in January 2014 as a Research Associate conducting program evaluation for community, transportation and workplace injury prevention programs. Emily is currently a Senior Program Manager in the Advocacy Department leading the fatigue initiative. The fatigue initiative is focused on educating employers on the risks of fatigue in the workplace and how to effective manage those risks. Emily has a Masters of Public Health from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
