S Y S T E M MANAGEMENT COMBAT WORKER FATIGUE WITH A WAREHOUSE I recently read an alarming statistic. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), worker fatigue costs employers an estimated $136 billion in health-related lost productivity each year in the U.S. alone. What's more, the NSC finds that fatigued worker productivity losses cost employers between $1,200 to $3,100 per employee each year. I've had similar conversations with warehouse operators, and employee fatigue is increasingly becoming a serious workplace issue. While not easily discernible in the accounting books, fatigue is impacting the bottom line for many distributors. While co-workers might make light of finding an employee asleep at their workstation or in a seldom picked zone of the warehouse, this could be a sign of worker fatigue.
