Did you know that more than 43% of U.S. workers are sleep deprived?

To combat this growing safety issue, the National Safety Council in collaboration with The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Sleep Matters Initiative developed the Fatigue Cost Calculator, a FREE online tool that estimates the cost of sleep deficiency in the workplace. The cost calculator asks users to enter the workforce size, industry, and location to provide a tailored estimate.
