Abstract text The study was sponsored by the Russian President's grant for state support of young Russian scientists - PhD (MK-7500.2016.6). The aim is to study the working capacity dynamics of oil and gas workers of different professional groups during shift-in period and their self-regulation possibility in the Arctic and the development of measures to optimize them.
The study involved 70 oil and gas workers in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug of Russia (the shift-in duration was 30 days) between the ages of 24 to 60 years (mean age 38,7 ± 9,7) from March to April 2015. Research methods are questioning, a complex visual-motor reaction, "variation cardiointervalometry"; descriptive statistics and multivariate analysis of variance MANOVA. Increases the efficiency of the staff assignments to the complex visual-motor reaction by the end of the shift period increases inerrancy, reduced the number of feedforwards, wrong answers; the reaction speed remains at the same level, the number of passes increases slightly from the middle to the end of the shift period. The operator's work capacity improved slightly in the middle of shift period, and then goes into decline by the end of the shift (with them work capacity during the entire shift have average level).Shift beginning can be characterized by the average operator working capacity, with an increased number of errors in the middle shift, operator' efficiency is increased, the number of errors is reduced by the shift end, decrease the operator's of working capacity to the average level, while the number of errors is at the same level relative to the middle of the shift period. Employees of all the studied occupational groups have an average level of self-regulation of behavior, which is expressed in the independence, flexibility and adequate response to changing conditions; extension and achieving goals are largely conscious.
