Job insecurity and health among industrial shift workers: the role of organizational context / Jasmina Tomas, Darja Maslić Seršić. - 189-205 str.

The aim of the study was to test the relationship between perceived job insecurity and self-rated health among one of the most vulnerable, yet understudied occupational groups, i.e. industrial shift workers. Specifically, we tested (i) the incremental contribution of job insecurity in predicting employees’ physical, general and mental health by controlling for the effects of basic working conditions and (ii) the moderating effects of working conditions on the relationship between job insecurity and health. The hypotheses were grounded on the assumptions of the psychological climate framework and the Conservation of Resources theory. We used a survey-based cross-sectional methodology to collect data among 459 industrial shift workers. The results showed that job insecurity represents one of the most important work stressor among this working population. Additionally, we found that several basic working conditions moderated the negative relationship between job insecurity and employees’ health – namely, job demands, job control and role clarity.
