Título Long workdays versus restdays: assessing fatigue and alertness with a portable performance battery
Información bibliográfica June 1988, Vol.30, No.3, p.305-317. Illus. 23 ref.
Resumen A test battery for assessing psychological and behavioural fatigue was used to compare restdays to a workweek of five 12-h days at a simulated data-entry job. The observed increase in data entry errors across the workday and the workweek, as well as subjective reports of increased tiredness on workdays, indicated that the work regimen was fatiguing. Test battery performance results paralleled those observations. On workdays, grammatical reasoning was faster but less accurate than on rest days; digit addition was slower; simple, dual and choice reaction times were slower; hand steadiness decreased.
