Shift systems in which rostered working time is split between two employees.

Can be based on various divisions of rostered working time, and can be used for any shift pattern, including continuous shift systems.

For example, with a continuous system generating 24hrs cover seven days a week, based on two, 12hr, shifts a day, rostered shifts are shared between two employees as follows. For each block of rostered Day shifts one employee works the first half of each shift, the other the second half. Blocks of Night shifts can be split in a similar way. Alternatively, each employee can work every other block of Night shifts in turn.
