THE ORGANIZATION OF WORK SCHEDULES FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS

A study of the alertness of 66 French air traffic controllers, based on a test of saccadio eye movements, is reported. The alertness levels determined by the experiment were found to show no significant correlation with the various work schedules of the air traffic personnel; however, the performance level did vary from day to night. Work schedules of air traffic controllers in other western European nations are also discussed.
