The workshop, organised around a series of talks from experts, yielded useful discussion and practical information that has been valued by participants from all departments from engineering, housekeeping, and front office to administration staff.

The talks ranged from ‘Importance of Body and Mind Balance’ to ‘How to Avoid Certain Habits That Engulf Daily Life’, as well as more practical presentations on handling fatigue.

A Thumbay official said that fatigue management is an important way to protect employees and improve productivity.
