||New demands in the transport sector have caused enterprises to change their service and working hours. This project examined the impact of working hours on the safety and health of workers in public transport and road haulage enterprises and evaluated different work schedules. The study highlighted ergonomic aspects likely to increase stress and in turn cause risks to health. Results indicate a large potential for improvements in working time arrangements at the company level, although improving working time conditions in this sector will also require efforts at the government level and in the area of standardization.
