Rotowork — job rotation of cleaning tasks in a medical laboratoryKeywords:
The hygiene institute was responsible for protecting the population against infectious diseases. Thousands of examinations, personal advice and vaccinations per year required hospital-like equipment and strict disinfection rules. There were cleaners for the laboratory equipment, cleaners for the employees’ clothes and those responsible for room cleaning. The institute wanted to reduce absenteeism and job turnover in the cleaning team, which consisted of 15 women, in such a way, that workers over 50 or 55 could remain in the job.
