An Exploration of Job Perceptions and Health Using an Integrative Approach

An Exploration of Job Perceptions and Health Using an Integrative Approach Job perceptions and their relations with psychologicaland physical health were explored in a small group of military air trafficcontrollers (ATCOs) working in a test flight center. The participants rateddimensions of job requirements (psychological demands, overcommitment,work–family interferences), job resources (control, professional, andpersonal social support), and health indicators. The results show that the ATCOsin the study perceived their job as an active and demanding job but not in thesame stressful way as civil ATCOs do. Some job requirement dimensions werepositively associated with a number of health indicators. Overall and on-shiftjob resources were partially correlated, unlike overall and on-shift jobrequirements. Results favor an integrative approach of job perceptions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

Job perceptions and their relations with psychologicaland physical health were explored in a small group of military air trafficcontrollers (ATCOs) working in a test flight center. The participants rateddimensions of job requirements (psychological demands, overcommitment,work–family interferences), job resources (control, professional, andpersonal social support), and health indicators. The results show that the ATCOsin the study perceived their job as an active and demanding job but not in thesame stressful way as civil ATCOs do. Some job requirement dimensions werepositively associated with a number of health indicators. Overall and on-shiftjob resources were partially correlated, unlike overall and on-shift jobrequirements. Results favor an integrative approach of job perceptions.
