Título Effects of a change in shift work on health
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1992, Vol.42, No.4, p.193-199. 23 ref.
Resumen Aspects of health were studied in a sample of factory workers who changed their pattern of working from "fortnight about" to three advancing shifts. Within the same factory and doing similar work there was a comparison group who were working permanent days only. The change in shifts was associated with more difficulty with sleep, more indigestion, higher alcohol consumption, reduced alertness and a worse social life. There was more minor psychiatric disturbance in those who worked three shifts than in those who worked days only.
