The Maritime and Coastguard Agency considers seafarer fatigue to be a potentially serious issue which is detrimental to safety at sea and the health of seafarers. A particular concern is the need to improve our knowledge of fatigue science and how this can be applied to the management and mitigation of fatigue.

As part of the programme to improve scientific knowledge the MCA commissioned the following two research projects to investigate specific aspects of fatigue as it applies to watchkeepers.
