||Information note. The shiftworker is at risk for health problems because of irregular patterns of eating, working, socialising, and sleeping. The results can adversely affect physical and psychological health. Special care must be taken by both the shiftworker and the employer to prevent as many of the adverse effects as possible. Design of the shift schedule to make it compatible with the body's circadian rhythms is an extremely important factor. Cooperation of the employer, the shiftworker, and the family of the shiftworker is essential.
