Whether you work in the oil & gas industry, process industries, network service providers, hospitals or hotels, what all these have in common is multi-shift operations. For a facility to operate safely and efficiently 24/7, it is necessary to apply best practices to shift working. Multiple-shift operation poses a challenge because of the potential for fatigue and disconnects caused by the fact that the personnel are changing every few hours.
