||May 1996, p.4-8. Illus. 2 ref.
||Increasing numbers of violent attacks on bus drivers in Dublin, Ireland, over the past decade have led to the development of an assaults intervention programme which provides treatment and counselling for post-traumatic stress disorder. Results of an independent stress study undertaken to assess the impact of the working environment on the health of bus drivers revealed that violence, shift work and running time were all considered to be sources of stress. Trade union suggestions for programmes to protect the health and safety of these workers are put forward.
