Glencraft to help Sleep Deprivation

As offshore workers experience disrupted work patterns, concerns have now been voiced regarding the potential impact fatigue and performance impairment has on offshore workers, specifically towards the end of the two - three week shifts, making injuries and accidents more likely on these dangerous and demanding jobs. According to the NHS, regular poor and interrupted sleep also puts you at risk of serious health problems.

Whilst shift work, including overtime, extended working hours and alternating shift rotas, does not only impact worker’s productivity and efficiency, it has the potential to impact the safety of the individual, their colleagues and the rigs/platforms, as well as their social and home life, even providing a significant safety risk when driving home once onshore, post-shift.

Glencraft have worked hard to create a luxury offshore mattress, Crib 7 under BS 7177 : 2008, believed to be the first of its kind in the UK. Designed to help with the challenging offshore lifestyle and help alleviate the issues stated above, this mattress will revitalise, energise and refresh offshore workers for both night and day shifts, aimed to improve both their mental and physical wellbeing by providing quality mattresses for a quality sleep.

Having such a sound understanding of the energy sector and its stringent requirements, our mattresses are continually tested to ensure that nothing is left to chance therefore giving customers peace of mind that we are in compliance with all legal requirements is key for Glencraft.

Operators and major service companies in the North Sea have already turned to Aberdeen-based Glencraft to help their people get a good night’s sleep.

Since 1843, Glencraft, based in Aberdeen, has been manufacturing the finest, luxury mattress. Every Glencraft bed and mattress is built from the highest quality material, from individual pocket springs, felted wools, cottons, natural horsehair, alpaca, silks and cashmere which are handcrafted by skilled craftspeople, many of whom are disadvantaged.
