Maritime New Zealand has developed a range of fatigue resources to help those working in the maritime industry to better understand the risks from fatigue, and how to prevent fatigue-related accidents by minimising fatigue onboard.
“Get your sleep, reduce your risk” is the message underpinning all of the fatigue management resources we have produced. These resources cover most vessel types in safe ship management (SSM) because they have the most fatigue-related accidents.
You can request printed copies of the following resources from Maritime New Zealand. Please include which resource(s) you want and your address details.
