4-3 Ten Hour Rotating Shift Schedule

The 4-3 Ten Hour Rotating Shift schedule uses 6 teams (crews) and 3 overlapping ten-hour shifts to provide 24/7 coverage. It consists of a 3-week cycle where each team works four consecutive 10-hour first shifts, followed by 3 days off duty, works four consecutive 10-hour third shifts, followed by 3 days off duty, works four consecutive 10-hour second shifts, followed by 3 days off duty. The overlapping shifts provide extra manpower during high activity periods. This plan requires 6 teams (a minimum of 6 employees) with 3 teams on duty and 3 teams off duty at any given day. Employees in all six teams are scheduled to work on the same day, one day a week. This day can be manipulated to fall on any day of the week to cover high activity day or in-service training. Personnel work 40 hours per week.
