Rotating shifts between daytime and nighttime is a horrible thing to
do to your workers, both for their health and their attention span.
I wonder how well something like the following would work (seen in
paid fire/EMS circles):
24 on, 48 off.
But staff those 24 shifts with maybe 20% more than actually needed to
provide minimum coverage.
That kind of schedule works well *ONLY* where the primary activity is
'sit and wait for something to happen'. Where it is OK to sleep on
the job, as long as you come fully awake when the alarm goes off.
