Title Work environment of Danish shift and day workers
Bibliographic information Apr. 2001, Vol.27, No.2, p.97-105. 51 ref.
Abstract Data on 5940 Danish employees in a cohort study from 1990 were reanalysed in order to study whether shift work is associated with other work factors related to heart disease. Beside work schedules, length of the work week, physical factors, psychosocial factors and age of workers were considered. Conflicts at work were higher among all the groups of shift workers and all-day walking or standing work were more often found among females. The analysed shift work was found to be associated with other work environment factors suspected to be involved in heart disease.
