Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim was to examine cleaners' experiences of opportunities to recover during the workday.

Method: The study was conducted by interviewing eleven cleaners within hospital cleaning service. The interviews were analyzed using manifest quality content analysis.

Results: Cleaners experienced that opportunities to recover during the workday depended on several factors. Task assignments could vary and experiences of prerequisites regarding recovery shifted between the participants. Common stressors were workload, stress and heavy, painful tasks. The workload affected the possibilities of resting. Besides breaks, organizational efforts and routines promoting recovery were experienced as few and unclear. Recovery could be discussed during meetings, but this shifted between organizations. Experiences of opportunities to recover during work changed over time. Suggestions to increase opportunities to recover included more breaks, meeting colleagues, workout during work, positive feedback and management of regular stressors. Common strategies to recover were taking breaks and pauses, talking with colleagues, trying to calm down, planning work and recover outside work.

Conclusions: Cleaners' experiences of opportunities to recover during work vary depending on tasks, individual experiences of prerequisites and regular stressors. Organizational efforts regarding recovery are often experienced as unclear and there is room for increasing opportunities to recover during work.
