Managing fatigue in operational settings. 1: Physiological considerations and countermeasures.

Author information

  • 1NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field California, USA.


The authors consider three aspects of managing fatigue in the workplace. They provide a brief overview of important scientific findings related to sleep and circadian physiology that establish the psychobiological foundation of fatigue. Their major focus is on the relevance of these findings to operational settings. In addition, they provide examples to describe practical fatigue countermeasures that can be used in operational settings.
