Abstract

This study is aimed at determining the effect of different shift systems on the social and domestic life of a sample of emergency services workers. The opinions of the partners of these workers were sought, because the influence of shift work should be viewed within the context of the family as its members are directly affected by the work schedules of shift workers.

Opsomming
Die doel van die ondersoek was om die effek van verskillende skofstelsels op die sosiale en huislike lewe van n steekproef van workers in die nooddienste te bepaal. Die menings van die gades van hierdie werkers is nagevors, want die uitwerking van skofwerkstelsels behoort in die konteks van die gesin gesien te word, aangesien gesinslede direk bemvloed word deur die skofskedules van die werker.
