Fiona is the founder of Shiftwork Services. She has been working with shiftworkers, their managers and supervisors since 1995 and has worked with most of New Zealand's leading organisations.
Fiona is a highly experienced trainer and presenter and is responsible for our programme of workshops and seminars. Her presentations are lively, entertaining and relevant to the challenges faced by the 24/7 society.
She regularly speaks at conferences on the subject of fatigue, sleep and roster design.
Fiona's particular interests are sleep and fatigue and she specialises in providing solutions to the biological and social disturbances common in shiftworking or extended hours situations.
Human beings are hard-wired to sleep at night, so when employees work shifts/extended hours this can significantly affect their judgment, alertness, reaction times and ability to think clearly. This reduced performance has a huge impact on the worker, the organisation they work in and the person's social relationships.
She originally trained as an occupational therapist in Britain and has worked with people with sleep problems in New Zealand, previously running a sleep clinic in Auckland.
Fiona has written a book, Getting A Good Night's Sleep, which has been published internationally and she is the editor of the FaidSafe alliance newsletter, Focus on Fatigue. This is a forum of current research, case histories and service information to help you manage fatigue risk.
Fiona is a member of the Australasian Sleep Association and the American Sleep Association.
