Abstract The performance and fatigue levels of volunteers were measured before, during and after a 60min simulated data entry job. When the work was interrupted at 10-30min intervals by 2-10min of rest, the overall performance of the subjects in entering data was better than in a 60min period without a break. When a sorting task was substituted for rest during the intervals, performance was even better, but the subjects' reaction time and visual fatigue increased.
