||Age, overtime, and employee health, safety and productivity outcomes: A case study
||Aug 2008, Vol.50, No.8, p.873-894. Illus. 18 ref.
||The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of overtime on employee health, safety, and productivity, comparing older versus younger workers. Secondary analyses of a longitudinal panel of 2746 workers of various heavy industry manufacturing sites in the United States were carried out for the years 2001 and 2002. The results show that when employees work overtime, there is no general increase of adverse outcomes with advancing age. Where rates of adverse outcomes do increase, they are confined to certain subgroups of employees doing certain types of work.
