Abstract

Shift work is not new to Indian Industry. Shift work pattern was introduced in textile and jute mills, and coal mines right from the beginning of those industries. Shift work involves working outside the normal daylight hours. Shift workers might work in the evening, in the middle of the night, overtime or extra-long workdays. They also might work regular days at one time or another. Many shift workers “rotate” around the clock, which involves changing work times from day to evening or day to night. The purposive and random sampling design was used. Forty respondents were selected for descriptive and experimental data. The descriptive data was collected through interview schedule. The experimental data was gathered for different physiological parameters and psychological parameters. The results reveal significant difference in psychological parameters of letter cancellation test and fatigue severity scale denoted stress and fatigue due to rotational job demand.
