Research has shown that there can be undesirable consequences for those working shifts outside standard daytime hours, particularly those covering the night or with early morning starts. For example, shift work may result in:

  • Disruption of the internal body clock;
  • Fatigue;
  • Sleeping difficulties;
  • Disturbed appetite or digestion;
  • Reliance on sedatives and/or stimulants;
  • Social and domestic problems

All of these issues can affect performance, increase the likelihood of errors and accidents at work, and might have a negative effect on health. That's why we've put together this White Paper on the H&S risks faced by those working sleep in shifts, and how to address them.
