Abstract

In the organizational context, the study of occupational stress encompasses constructs of fatigue at work. Within the air transportation sector, fatigue at work is a potential issue influencing both safety and occupational stress. The objective of the present study was to perform a convergent-discriminant validity analysis of the Feeling of Fatigue scale in the area of Administration. Data from an observational cross-sectional study involving a sample of 1,066 airline pilots were analyzed using quantitative modeling. Confirmatory factor analysis with the structural equations model was performed to determine the validity of a Portuguese version of the Feeling of Fatigue scale in the organizational context of civil aviation. This study fills a gap in the literature on occupational stress in Administration, highlighting the relevance of research on fatigue at work. The results confirmed the validity of a Portuguese version of a mature scale for subjective assessment of fatigue in Administration, thereby contributing to fatigue management in organizational settings.
