What is a fatigue management app?
To ensure safe work, fatigue levels of staff must be monitored, including where, when and for how long they’ve worked. The onus is usually on the employee to submit their hours worked, with data being compiled in the office, signed off by a line manager and then used to inform everything from salary and benefits, to future schedules of work.
Fatigue management apps are designed to streamline this process by replacing your paper- and spreadsheet-based timesheet templates with a standardised tool that staff can access on their mobile phones. This data can be administrated and interpreted instantly, making it quicker and easier to identify potential fatigue-induced risk — imperative for keeping workers safe.

How do I choose a fatigue risk management app?
While logging timesheets is good practice in any business, many industries have regulations compelling staff to record working hours and activities to closely monitor fatigue risk. Physical industries like rail, construction, and haulage, heavily regulated by standards boards like the RSSB, face hefty penalties if fatigue management data isn’t recorded in the prescribed format or is poorly managed. And of course the biggest risk is fatigue leading to an incident that puts safety at risk.
A daily mobile timesheet app gives staff a way of logging hours worked and activities each day, with an in-built fatigue management module to monitor symptoms of fatigue and hours worked outside of the prescribed shift pattern (and explanations for doing so).
Weekly timesheet apps tend to be better on longer projects where staff are working consistent shift patterns in the same location, or alternatively for pulling together daily timesheets on a weekly basis. You can set up notifications to alert staff after they’ve worked too many consecutive hours, and in some cases prevent them from working again until they’ve rested for a suitable period.
Others may prefer to use a clock-in/out timesheet where staff can quickly log where and when they work, using either GPS data to track location or a QR code scanner to validate their presence on-site. The app will automatically calculate hours worked and flag any fatigue risks to the worker or their manager .
Customers who use Nutshell’s mobile timesheet apps also find the following useful, especially as these apps can be easily linked together to create fully-automated workflows.

Think of all the fun ways you can spend the time and money you’ve saved not having to chase missing data
The trouble with off-the-shelf fatigue management software is that it rarely talks to the rest of your business software. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow, expensive and leads to mistakes and data blind-spots… which defeats the object in going digital in the first place.
Imagine if your fatigue index software could alert your site/shift report app when an employee has exceeded safe working hours, all on its own. Well, with Nutshell it can.
Nutshell apps are 100% customisable to your business. Not just the superficial stuff – every part of your workflow, from data-capture and line-manager approval, to processing, reporting and integrating with your existing back-office systems.
