Graduate Certificate in Fatigue Risk Management

  • Graduate Certificate

Recent developments in safety regulation means that there are very good employment prospects for graduates of the course. Fatigue has recently been classified as an identifiable work related hazard and organizations in certain industry sectors are now required to present a fatigue management plan under relevant legislation. Preparation of a fatigue risk management plan in aviation, rail, road and mining will require an appropriately qualified individual to assist in the design, implementation and evaluation of this plan. In addition, regulatory agencies tasked with approving fatigue risk management plans will require appropriately trained and knowledgeable professionals.
