Título Regulating hours of work in the road haulage industry: the case for social criteria
Título original La réglementation de la durée du travail dans les transports routiers: l'importance des critères sociaux [en francés]
Información bibliográfica Sep.-Oct. 1985, Vol.124, No.5, p.577-592. 31 ref.
Resumen If the regulations concerned are effectively to protect the safety and well-being of drivers, more attention should be paid to such psychosocial factors as the reduction of fatigue, the provision of adequate rest, sleep, hygiene and food, and norms of work in this industry should be better harmonised with those that are accepted in society at large. The following aspects were analysed: evidence on safety and the promulgation of legislation; evidence on hours of work and driving safety (relationship between working or driving hours, time of day, fatigue, length of the working week and accident risk), provision for rest, sleep, hygiene and nourishment, social norms of work and leisure, enforcement of the regulations. Guidelines are suggested for the design of regulations on night work, shift work, and working and driving time.
