Energy Institute publish Clockwork guidance on implementing a Fatigue Risk Management Plan
20th April, 2014
The Energy Institute, the professional body representing the energy industry, has released a major new guidance manual on fatigue risk management, written by Clockwork Research.
The new publication, Managing fatigue using a fatigue risk management plan (FRMP), supersedes previous EI work on fatigue and recommends managing fatigue as part of a safety management system (SMS, in the same way other aspects of health, safety, environment and productivity are managed.
Consisting of two parts, the publication:
- Provides a source of reference for site-level managers directly responsible for managing fatigue;
- Defines and describes the elements of an FRMP that complies with industry good practice; and
- Provides managers with practical step-by-step guidance on how to build, implement and maintain an FRMP.
Despite its origins, the publication is relevant for all major hazard industries, including onshore and offshore operations. Organisations in the early stages of implementing an FRMP will find the publication particularly useful, whilst those with an FRMP in place should also benefit as a means to compare their existing FRMP against good practice.
