You would be hard pressed to find anyone who has not been tired at work. In fact, a survey from the National Sleep Foundation found that two-thirds of Americans don’t have their sleep needs met during the week. Although we may all get fatigued from time to time, sleep deprivation can place workers, consumers, and the general public at increased risk of suffering injuries in preventable accidents.
A prime example of the dangers posed by tired workers can be seen in the highly publicized lawsuit between Tracy Morgan and Walmart settled just last week. In that case, it was discovered that the Walmart truck driver had been awake for over 24 hours before he caused the fatal accident.
