Level of « maturity » of the fatigue-related « safety culture » among different populations in the company.

Organizational charts and dedicated ressources.

Methodology

 

We have developed a scientific expertise :

Plannings and theoretical rhythms of work


The analyzed elements

 

> The essential factors of hours ouf work in your organization :

   • Duty lengths
