Working to Your Limit - How do you manage the risk of fatigue-induced errors?

""""14 CFR Part 121.377 -- Maintenance and preventive maintenance personnel duty time limitations, says:
Within the United States, each certificate holder (or person performing maintenance or preventive maintenance functions for it) shall relieve each person performing maintenance or preventive maintenance from duty for a period of at least 24 consecutive hours during any seven consecutive days, or the equivalent thereof within any one calendar month.
Although aviation maintenance personnel typically work long hours, often nights and weekends, they are rarely included in aviation industry programs to fight fatigue (physical and mental).
