The 5-3 5-4 5-3 Ten Hour Rotating Shift schedule uses 5 teams (crews) and 3 overlapping ten-hour shifts to provide 24/7 coverage. It consists of a 25 day cycle where each team works five consecutive 10-hour first shifts, followed by 3 days off duty, works five consecutive 10-hour third shifts, followed by 4 days off duty, works five consecutive 10-hour second shifts, followed by 3 days off duty. The overlapping shifts provide extra manpower during high activity periods. This plan requires 5 teams (a minimum of 5 employees) with 3 teams on duty and 2 teams off duty at any given day.
