As future success in the oil and gas industry hinges on increasing efficiencies, companies will invest in the production capabilities of both emerging technologies and highly-skilled workers. One of the two can work non-stop day and night while maintaining precision and accuracy. The other has unique skills that cannot be replicated by a machine, but, without adequate rest, functions at ineffective or counter-effective levels. Whether fatigue is the result of long shifts requiring high vigilance or an undiagnosed sleep disorder, oil and gas workers are prone to fatigue as a result of poor sleep quality, quantity and timing.
