Presentation: Screening Approaches to Deter Alertness Deficits in Safety Sensitive Workers at the Annual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference
Dr. Daniel Mollicone presents at the annual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference on May 7, 2019.
Topic: Screening Approaches to Deter Alertness Deficits in Safety Sensitive Workers
In safety sensitive occupations, an alert worker is the best defense against accidents. Workers may experience alertness deficits and elevated safety risk due to fatigue, medical conditions or medications. This presentation covers an approach to aid in the detection of alertness deficits to ensure workers are sufficiently alert to be safe on the job. The approach is based on a widely recognized, heavily validated, standard measure of behavioral alertness. The presentation will provide an overview of the scientific basis of this approach as well as results from a program recently implemented at ExxonMobil to aid in the detection of alertness deficits in safety sensitive workers.
Starting at 1:30 PM
