Construction strategies that minimize congestion and disruption to local communities are becoming more common. These rapid renewal strategies involve extended work shifts, nighttime work and work zones adjacent to active roadways. Since rapid renewal will likely add to occupational fatigue on highway construction sites, managers must understand occupational fatigue to successfully deliver projects with minimal injuries.
This article reviews characteristics that con- tribute to cognitive and localized muscular fatigue, methods to measure and control fatigue and its effects on safe work behavior and quality of life. A model of fatigue management is offered as well.

Some of the OnePetro partner societies have developed subject- specific wikis that may help.
|PetroWiki was initially created from the seven volume Petroleum Engineering Handbook (PEH) published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
|The SEG Wiki is a useful collection of information for working geophysicists, educators, and students in the field of geophysics. The initial content has been derived from : Robert E. Sheriff's Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.
