How fatigued employees affect your business

Updated September 28, 2020

The long-term impact of sleep deprivation on employees is real and tangible. It is estimated that sleep problems cause 13% of work injuries. An accumulation of sleep debt can lead to:

  • Less energy
  • Lower cognitive function
  • Reduced productivity
  • Decreased ability to cope with stress

The infographic below from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health demonstrates the risks that exist when employees do not get enough sleep. These risks are especially high in industries such as mining that see more worked hours, longer shifts, and increased shift work.
