On 5 May 2003, The Health & Safety in Employment Act will be updated to incorporate legislation to protect employees from "stress and fatigue" as potential work hazards and sources of harm in the workplace.

If you are an employer, you will be expected to identify potential areas of risk and concern in the workplace and act to protect employees from undue physical, mental & emotional stress and fatigue.

OSH defines fatigue as "a temporary inability or a decrease in ability, or a strong disinclination to respond to a situation, because of inadequate recuperation from previous over-activity, either mental, emotional or physical".

Some of the key factors that cause fatigue include - physical or mental exertion, sleep disruption, poor nutrition, stress or underlying medical causes.
