This document is designed to provide managers with a practical, broad-based guide to understanding, recognising and managing fatigue and fatigue-related issues in fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) operations in the oil and gas sector. It talks about the nature of FIFO operations and describes the parameters that need to be considered to manage fatigue: sleep, accommodation, travel planning, fatigue risk management systems, and training, among other considerations.
