Administer the implementation of fatigue management strategies

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: September 2018


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to administer the implementation of fatigue management strategies during work operations in a defined workplace in accordance with national and state/territory legislation and relevant regulations.

It includes monitoring the implementation of fatigue management strategies, recognising breaches of fatigue management policies, procedures and regulations, and developing and assessing staff competence in fatigue management.

It also includes providing feedback to staff on shortcomings in their fatigue management skills and knowledge, and reporting to management on the implementation of fatigue management policy.

Work is performed under limited supervision generally as a team leader or supervisor.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)
