Understanding human limits in a world that never stops


Today’s sophisticated technology, integrated global economy and constant drive for increased profits have led to great advances but have failed to consider human limitations. The human body is not well-equipped for the world we have created and we are suffering the consequences. The Chernobyl explosion, the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, Three Mile Island and tens of thousands of smaller accidents, as well as billions of dollars of productivity losses, were the result of human fatigue. Dr. Moore-Ede brings together the latest scientific findings and presents a wide array of management tools and technologies that allow you to monitor alertness and performance impairment. He shows how to rethink work schedules, manage information flow and improve working environments.
