Public (Over) Worked: Plowing Snow Plans

admin ASKED

Does anyone have any type of research or can point me in the right direction to something that details the physical and psychological effects to municipal workers plowing snow for many hours/days throughout a snowstorm? I've seen municipalities put their workers through the grind for up to 36 hours with minimal breaks and thought there has to be a municipality or two that have developed that happy balance. Any help is much appreciated.
