About the Event

Fatigue associated with shiftwork and extended work hours can negatively affect the safety and health of workers, as well as impact a company’s productivity and bottom line. You are invited to attend the free Fatigue Risk Management Industry Day event at Washington State University’s Health Sciences Spokane campus on September 8 and 9, 2019. It’s an exclusive opportunity to hear international scientists and industry experts present on the latest developments in the science of fatigue.

The Fatigue Risk Management Industry Day is being organized in conjunction with the 24th International Symposium on Shiftwork and Working Time held September 9-13 in Coeur d’Alene, ID. The symposium is expected to draw more than 200 researchers and practitioners from around the world who are concerned with shiftwork and its effects on safety and health. See www.shiftwork2019.com.

Event Overview

A welcome reception with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be held on Sunday evening, September 8, 2019. This will formally kick off the Industry Day event and allow guests to network and socialize.

On Monday morning, September 9, 2019, a continental breakfast will be provided. The program will begin with a plenary address featuring internationally renowned scientists and practitioners in the field of fatigue risk management.

Following the plenary address, guests can choose to attend one of several breakout sessions. These sessions will focus on “hot topics” related to shiftwork, health, and safety. Following a lunch session, there will be a second round of breakout sessions before the program concludes around 4 pm. Specific topics and speakers for the breakout sessions will be announced closer to the event date.

For those who will be attending both the Fatigue Risk Management Industry Day and the Shiftwork2019 conference, transportation will be provided between the two events.
