A regional FRMS Forum meeting is planned to be held adjacent to the Managing Fatigue conference planned for 20th to 23rd March 2017 in San Diego, California, USA. All are welcome to attend from anywhere in the world, but the meeting will be primarily focused on FRMS within USA. It will be held in the Westin Hotel, Gas lamp Quarter, San Diego, California. For the discounted room rate, please book through the Managing Fatigue website.
The meeting has been planned to coincide with the more academic Managing Fatigue conference in order to encourage a cross fertilisation between academic and operational groups. The FRMS forum meeting will be held for one day only, Friday 24th March, immediately following the Managing Fatigue conference.
The focus of the FRMS Forum meeting will be to review progress of FRMS in the region – adoption/development of science, operational implementation, regulatory oversight, ongoing development efforts in science, operations, and regulations.
About the Managing Fatigue Conference
The Managing Fatigue Symposium, is primarily focused on scientific development and moving science from “lab to operations.” This year, Managing Fatigue is expanding focus on operations and expects that partnering with FRMS Forum will cross-fertilise communities, encouraging the sharing of expertise among scientists and operators in many industries. The anticipated result is actionable adoption strategies for new science and enhanced collaboration among industry, science, and regulators.
Managing Fatigue is focusing Day 4 (Thursday 23rd March) on FRMS, so those interested should register for at least that single day of the Managing Fatigue conference , though we suggest reviewing the full 4-day agenda on the Managing Fatigue website.
