Webinar: SPIs, Biomathematical Models, and other Technologies to Quantify and Mitigate Fatigue Risk
Measuring improvement in safety performance typically is achieved through establishing and reviewing Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs). This presentation will present approaches to quantify the extent to which fatigue impacts SPIs. Techniques will be presented based on biomathematical models and other technologies to monitor for fatigue levels relative to critical thresholds that are associated with degraded SPI metrics. When fatigue is detected mitigation procedures can be implemented to reduce fatigue levels. This whole process enables a systematic approach to manage fatigue risk and drive sustainable safety improvements that are measurable through SPIs.

Presented by Daniel Mollicone, Ph.D. - CEO, Pulsar Informatics
Webinar Series Overview: Fatigue risk impacts every part of flight operations including pilots and flight attendants as well as mechanics and ramp personnel whose mission critical activities ensure the plane is ready for flight. Fatigue risk management is a shared responsibility. Operators must provide duty schedules that provide for adequate rest opportunity. Crew members must manage their time on and off duty to ensure that they are rested and fit for duty. A comprehensive fatigue risk management program provides a quantitative objective framework to monitor for and mitigate the full spectrum of fatigue related risk in the operation. This webinar series covers the key steps needed to implement a comprehensive fatigue risk management program in your operation.
