STANDING ORDER NUMBER XX
CREW ENDURANCE AND FATIGUE MANAGEMENT
Revised 9.19.2019
 
Reference (a)  CNSP / CNSL INST 3120.2 of 30 Nov 2017 – Comprehensive Fatigue and Endurance Management Policy
 
1. Crew Fatigue and Endurance Management
 
a.  The combat readiness of USS XXXXX depends on the individual readiness of each sailor onboard. Research has shown that humans require 8 hours (on average) of uninterrupted sleep each night to function effectively. This means allowing 9 hours for prep and transition into sleep. Even a small deficit in sleep for a few days can lead to impaired judgement, slow reaction times and decreased physical readiness. Getting proper rest yields the clear mind and combat edge we need to win, and we cannot afford to yield this advantage to our adversaries.
 
  b. I expect leaders up and down the chain of command do their utmost to provide 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep availability to every crew member, and prevent needlessly fatiguing the crew. In turn, I expect each member USS XXXXXX to make every effort to manage their own individual crew rest at all times.  You would not take the watch drunk or if you lacked qualifications - do not take the watch fatigued.
 
c.  The requirement to sleep does not mean that there will not be occasions when other requirements interfere with watch routines.  Supervisors must use all available tools to plan ahead for PMS, corrective maintenance, drills and training to ensure that workload is predictable and shared equitably, and take corrective actions as necessary to mitigate the impact of emergent events. If you reach a point where work must be deferred due to fatigue or to preserve sleep prior to watch, notify your supervisor for guidance.
 
 
2. Actions. The following provisions will be observed daily onboard USS XXXX to ensure adequate crew rest:
 
a. USS XXXXX will preserve proper sleeping conditions including noise discipline, light discipline in berthing areas and adjacent spaces from 1900 until the conclusion of late sleepers, usually 0900. 
 
b. Personal devices with lit screens including smart phones, smart phones, tablets and laptops will be secured from 1900 until the conclusion of late sleepers due to their ill effects on sleep and wakefulness cycles.
 
c. Routine operations, evolutions, drills, and training will not be planned from 1900 until the conclusion of late sleepers, usually 0900. 
 
d. Ship-wide announcements of an administrative nature will be kept to a minimum, planned from 1900 until the conclusion of late sleepers, usually 0900.
 
e. I will have a non-punitive policy for any member who takes the initiative to request watch relief due to fatigue.  The safety of the ship is more important than saving face. If you feel that you may be ineffective on watch due to fatigue, then you have a duty to your shipmates to take action. This means that self-reporting will not incur punitive action for missing a watch.
 
  • Prior to Watch: Notify your watch supervisor, including the reason for fatigue (sickness, training and shipboard evolution, etc.) and request to switch watches. Watch supervisors will report the switch to the Senior Watch Officer.
  • While on Watch: Notify your watch supervisor, so that a switch can be made promptly. If you are experiencing micro-sleeps or cannot stay awake, call   
 
f. Watches will be scheduled on a circadian basis whenever possible, meaning that watches will add up to a 24-hour period [in accordance with USS XXXXXXX Notice XXXXXXX]. Notify the XO or Senior Watch Officer promptly if this is not possible.
 
 
3.  Routine Evolutions and Briefings.
 
a. Crew rest shall be discussed as part of operational risk management and individual risk management, and as part of all pre-evolution briefs.
 
b. Briefings for any evolution onboard USS XXXXX will include the following statement: “If any member of this evolution feels they have not had enough rest to perform it safely, see myself or the XO immediately so we can find a replacement for you.” 
 
c. Unplanned evolutions will occur. Adherence to this standing order will improve your resilience to ensure that you are better prepared for casualty response (such as fire, flooding or medical emergency). You enter battle with the sleep you have.  After the evolution is complete, supervisors must review the schedule for all personnel under their purview to ensure that they do not have follow-on duties that will be impacted by the interruption to their normal routine.
