The studied variables were: stress, sleep disorders (insomnia, drowsiness, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome), psychosocial risk factors, impact of working shifts and accidents. It found more frequency of drivers with sleep disorder in rotating shift than daytime shift. The daytime shift was describe as high psychosocial risk, level 1, and rotating shift was describe as without risk according to the same evaluation. The psychosocial risk of daytime shift was evaluated as high risk, level 1, and rotating shift was described as without risk. A relation ship among accident rates and the studied variables was determined. The daytime shift showed significant correlations among variables such as accident rates, stress and social support; in the other hand, the correlation among accident rates and compensation was signifi cant to the rotating shift.
