STRESS IN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS: COMPARISON OF TWO AIR ROUTE TRAFFIC CONTROL CENTERS ON DIFFERENT SHIFT ROTATION PATTERNS
Stress in 23 air traffic controllers (ATCS) at Atlanta Air Route Traffic Control Center (ATL) on the straight 5-day shift rotation schedule was compared with stress in 23 ATCS's on the 2-2-1 shift rotation schedule at Fort Worth Air Route Traffic Control Center (FTW). Stress in six other FTW ATCS's on the 5-day schedule was compared to stress in their 23 cohorts on the 2-2-1 schedule. Stress estimates were made from urinary levels of 17-ketogenic steroids (st), epinephrine (e), and norepinephrine (ne).
