At Fatiguefit we like to challenge the perception that fatigue risk management is expensive, complicated and inefficient. Why? Because it doesn’t have to be.


As experts in the management of fatigue, exploring new and innovative ways to do just that and sharing them with our clients excites us! We believe that if it’s backed by science and experience – and we have plenty of both – it’s okay to throw out the old and bring in the new.
