Today, 17 August, 2008 : PMT, one of SHELL Contractor Haulier, invited me to give a health talk to their staff at their monthly meeting. The topic of my talk is FATIGUE , a condition of tiredness, listlessness, poor memory,weariness and feel sleepiness. There are multiple causes of fatigue such as viral infections, metabolic, immunological and genetic. The contributing factors are also plenty from lifestyle, work nature, lack of sleep etc. Fatigue can be divided into acute of which the duration is less than 30 days and chronic if more than 30 days.
It is important for the SHELL drivers to minimise their fatigue condition by identify its contributing factors inorder to safeguard their safety when carrying out their job.
