An understanding of physical fatigue versus mental fatigue;
An understanding of sleep and why it is important to fatigue management;
An understanding of hours of work and roster characteristics that increase fatigue risk;
The body clock and circadian rhythms; and
Applying a risk management approach to fatigue.
