DeFord Contracting Inc. recognizes that fatigue is a factor, which may affect a worker’s ability to perform mental and physical tasks. The nature of work in the road building industry requires an extension to the working hours of its employees. All management and supervisory personnel must be able to recognize and respond to the signs and symptoms of fatigue that might impair the worker’s performance.

Training will be provided to recognize and respond to fatigue issues in the field. It is the responsibility of the supervisor to make corresponding changes to work requirements if fatigue impairment signs are evident. All concerns should be communicated to management and corresponding changes should be documented for review and follow-up. The development, implementation and continual monitoring of an FMP will help ensure employers are providing a safe and healthy work environment for all workers.

There is no us without a healthy you.

Safety. Respect the unexpected.
