The Fatigue Risk Index (FRI)
The Fatigue Risk Index (FRI) has been withdrawn from the HSE website. The reasons for this are:
The software platform is an older Excel that can no longer be supported on the HSE website.
The design of the FRI requires improvement to promote better understanding of its outputs, its limitations and its role in a Fatigue Management System.
In its current format, there have been case of the FRI being issued in order to justify work patterns that clearly require further action t reduce fatigue-relate risk.
FRI users who have access to the FRI in its current format can continue to use it, provided you have the necessary expertise to use the tool and understand the outputs and limitations.
Following feedback we are making the tool available, as well as how to documents, to aid with calculations.
