2023 Conference – Day 2 – Sleep & Fatigue Plenary

Sick and Tired: A Conversation About Stress, Fatigue and First Responders
Presented by Mike Harnett

In an EMS world ruled by pandemics, staff shortages, and public demands, it’s not unusual to feel like you’re barely hanging on, especially given the nature of work. This unending loop between stress and fatigue is not an easy one to jump off. This session will address the relationship between stress and fatigue, and what is being done at the national level with the development of a new CSA Standard and guidance on Fatigue Risk Management for First Responders.
