Fatigue can be a problem in all types of situations, whether you're operating a forklift, using a grinder, driving a truck, or doing any other job that requires you to be focused and alert. Feeling exhausted interferes with our ability to think and act effectively. It prevents us from performing up to our potential, reduces our productivity, and significantly increases our chances of being hurt, even killed, on the job. It can be expensive as well. Altogether the problem of worker fatigue costs U.S. businesses more than $130 billion per year.
