In order to effectively carry out fatigue risk management of airport staff, the risk factors that caused airport staff fatigue were analyzed from five aspects based on “5 M” model which had been proposed by FAA. The five aspects were men, machine, media, management, and mission. Then, a corresponding hierarchy structure model was established. By using fuzzy analytic hierarchy process and fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method, the fatigue risk factors of airport staff were evaluated. The result showed that the comprehensive evaluation of the fatigue risk factors is medium risk, and the management factor and human factor are the main fatigue risk factors to airport staff. At last, targeted risk control measures were proposed.
