This is the worst mistake people make at work

American workers are under-slept and over-tired.

Some 43% of workers say they do not get enough sleep to stay safe at work, according to a survey of 2,000 workers released Wednesday by the National Safety Council. That includes the ability to think clearly, make informed decisions and be productive and, in turn, avoid accidents. “We hope Americans recognize that impairment stems not just from alcohol and drugs, but lack of restorative rest,” says Deborah Hersman, chief executive of the organization.

This is backed up by a far broader body of research. “Highly sleepy workers are 70% more likely to be involved in accidents than non-sleepy workers, and workers with chronic insomnia are far more likely than well-rested individuals to report industrial accidents or injuries,” according to data from the National Sleep Foundation.
