WA Branch AGM & Breakfast Meeting Presented

WA Branch AGM & Breakfast Meeting
Presentation: Systems of work for managing fatigue
Presented by Kate Ponton
In the maritime environment, it is important to continually address
crew endurance to maintain safety, performance, morale and
wellbeing. The sustainment of crew endurance and many of its risk
factors are interlinked with managing fatigue which can be affected
by work schedules, body clock stability, stress and workload,
environmental stressors, physical conditioning and health and
nutrition. Some of the main maritime crew endurance risk factors
and issues will be presented, along with tools that can be used to
evaluate fatigue and fatigue risk.
Kate Ponton is a Certified Professional Ergonomist who has worked with the Defence Science and
Technology Organisation (DSTO) since 2006 in submarine related human factors research. Kate’s
research experience is broad. Her initial work was focused on submarine combat systems
researching usability and principles of design, mental workload measures and exploring the metrics
afforded by eye tracking technology. Subsequent work has focused on the application of human
systems integration (HSI) processes to minimise human related risks in the future submarine
program. Under the broad spectrum of HSI, her recent work aims to understand crew endurance
and habitability and related design drivers for long duration missions.
