Hello professional working in shifts,
Thank you for your hard work, your societal contribution is great!
But the bill for your health can increase over the years.
Important effects of working in shifts mainly relate to the changing work schedule, the varying working hours and working in night hours. A major cause of possible negative effects — especially when working in the night — is that the ‘biological clock’ of the human body, built on day-to-day operation and not night operation, is disturbed.
This affects, for example, the quality of sleep. In addition, the average sleep time of people working in night service is up to 4 hours shorter than if they were to sleep at night. Other common problems are stomach/bowel complaints.
