Bus operators' responses to job strain: An experimental test of the job demand-control model

Researchers in this study tested the effects of bus drivers' work demands on the drivers' psychological and physiological well being. Using driving simulators, the researchers tested the Job Demand-Control model's buffer hypothesis, which states that drivers who are more highly skilled and have the authority to make decisions experience fewer negative effects on their health and driving performance as a result of the demands of their jobs. Their findings show that this is indeed the case.
