How to Improve Your Sleep and the Safety Dangers of Sleep Deprivation
How to Improve Your Sleep and the Safety Dangers of Sleep Deprivation | Dan Collins (Sleep Episode #1)
Today we bring you the first in our short series around sleep awareness and how it factors into health and safety.
We are joined by professional teambuilding coach Dan Collins from FreshTracks for a discussion on some of the tips on how you can improve your sleep and why you should be mindful of the amount of sleep you are getting.
Some of the key tips from Dan include;
avoiding excessive screen time during the evening
avoiding alcohol in the evening as it prevents REM sleep
exercising and trying to stick to a good diet
keeping the ‘work from home’ set up as separate from the bedroom/bed as you can
In addition to this podcast, we are also conducting some research on how workers in the UK are sleeping and what it means for their safety at work. Make sure you are subscribed to the HSE Network to stay up to date with the latest findings.
