BSS New Zealand pride ourselves on having the most comprehensive and practical programmes for employees and for supervisors/managers.
As part of this programme, participants undertake an in-depth sleep assessment to determine the level and causes of their fatigue. This information is then used to create an individual sleep / fatigue profile and a personal fatigue management plan. Because fatigue is such a pervasive component of impairment, our training is broad brush, also addressing use of alcohol, caffeine, medication, lifestyle matters, exercise and nutrition.
Collected individual data is de-personalised and can be aggregated to produce an organisational report from which broader interventions can be delivered.
Sleep is vital to good health and performance. Poor sleep and fatigue can lead to loss of enjoyment of life and contribute to many serious medical problems such as diabetes and obesity. It can also be a serious risk to your safety, especially when at work or driving. An investment in this primarily sleep hygiene and sleeping disorder management programme is for an assessment and up to 6 sessions with a sleep specialist. The programme can be delivered face-to-face, online video or telephone. If you wish to refer an employee to this programme, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ring +64 4 382 8071.

There are no personal assessments in the leaders training - much of the workshop concentrates on decisionmaking, thus assisting participants to develop confidence in making right choices on employee fatigue and then being involved in case management with a specialist provider.
The workshop covers the following areas:
