Shift work is associated with negative effects on sleep and performance as well as with chronic fatigue. The goal of this cross-sectional study was to explore chronic fatigue symptoms among automotive part workers. Chronic fatigue symptoms were measured using the Piper Fatigue Scale (PFS) questionnaire. Fatigue measurement results showed that about 50.7% of die-casting part shift workers had symptoms of mild fatigue, and 49.3% had symptoms of severe fatigue. The risk factors significantly related to fatigue symptoms include job design, overtime, physical workload, commute time, and health status. This study shows that shift work might affect fatigue symptoms among manufacturing workers. It seems necessary to implement ergonomic continuous improvement programs for more appropriate shift work as well as reducing working hours.
