    This document summarizes recent scientific findings concerning the relationship between overtime and finding no relationship between long work hours and leisure-time physical activity (two of fatigue, lower cognitive function, declines in vigilance on task measures, and increased.

    industrial fatigue: Mental or physical exhaustion resulting from performing required work-related activities that leads to a diminished capacity for performing the work. Generally attributed to poor working conditions or demanding job requirements. (a) the relation of fatigue to industrial accidents; (b) fatigue and industrial inefficiency-presumably poorer work and less work is done in the last hour of a day's labor than in other hours; (c) fatigue and contagious diseasesi-an overworked laboring man or woman is .

    Industrial or "time-on-task" fatigue describes fatigue that is accumulated during the working period, and affects performance at different times during the shift. Performance declines the longer a person is engaged in a task, gradually during the first few hours and more steeply toward the end of a long period at work. intervals may create disturbance and also workers loses the continuity of the work or get out of the mood for it. The solution for this problem is to introduce rest periods in between working hours should be depending upon the nature of the work. Physical and mental health also causes the fatigue in workplace. In the case of a physically weak worker there is quick onset of fatigue compared to.

Industrial fatigue and the relation between hours of work and output, with a memorandum on sickness. fatigue profiles. To assess the relationship between overtime work and fatigue, these five issues need to be taken into account.

Preferably, such a study: 1 and 2) should be based on a large, hetero-geneous, and representative sample of employees with enough contrast with respect to overtime hours and fatigue; 3) should take into account. Fatigue is the transitory period between awake and asleep; if fatigue goes uninterrupted, it can lead to sleep; according to Lal and Craig ().

Similarly, Gander et al. () define fatigue as: ― the inability to function at the desired level due to incomplete recovery from the demands of prior work.

The tremendous difficulty of the problem of fatigue is vividly illustrated by the research done by the United States Public Health Service on the relationship be­tween fatigue and hours of work of interstate truck drivers.

This is one of the most valuable studies in this field. The purposes of this study were. The effect of hours of work on output is not easy to identify because of changes in motivation that may be due to possible changes in pay.

Output in relation to hours of work has been studies with respect to the length of the work- week and the workday, and also in terms of the number of days worked per week. Thus, if total output was observed to decrease when employees who had been working 40 hour weeks were made to work 60 hours per week, it would be the case that 60 x P Fatigue lowers average productivity, measured as output per worker hour, for almost all of the apparel industries.

As the overall daily performance of each worker is not same and the change in their performance defer from one worker to. Long work hours and extended and irregular shifts may be stressful physically, mentally and emotionally.

The body operates on a circadian rhythm sleep/wake cycle. It is naturally programmed for sleeping during night hours. Demanding work schedules may disrupt the body's natural cycle, leading to increased fatigue, stress and lack of concentration.

the study of the relationship between people, the equipment they use and the physical environment in which they work. Applying ergonomic principles to the design, modification and maintenance of workplace environments, has a benefit on people’s work performance and short- and longterm.

The recent economic crisis and creation of a “hour society” where line between work and non-work time is becoming increasingly hours are associated with higher output rates per hour.

Second, in terms of work. Many American workers spend over 40 hours a week at work and almost 15 million work full time on evening, night, rotating or other irregular shifts.

Work schedules like these may cause worker fatigue. Shift workers may be scheduled to work days, evenings, nights and/or on a rotating or on-call basis. And the degree of correlation between industrial fatigue and the evidence of fatigue revealed by the tests was unknown and apparently unknowable.

At present it can only be studied and estimated by means of industrial work curves-curves of output and curves of spoilt work, indicating variations in the quantity and the quality of the worker's.

Manpower utilizes other resources and gives output. If manpower is not The relationship between a corporation and its employees is usually handled through the human resources department, which handles the incorporation of new hires, and the disbursement of any benefits which the employee may be entitled, or any work of an establishment.

(3) The output generated from FWA, namely Work-life balance, Psychological well-being, work motivation, and work effectiveness. According to several studies, FWA can improve work-life. Furthermore, fatigue is strongly influenced by other job characteristics, such as psychological job demands, decision latitude, and emotional and physical demands.

29 Job characteristics often differ substantially between day and shift workers. 30 Cross sectional analyses on the data of the Maastricht Cohort Study on Fatigue at Work revealed that the association between work schedules and need.
