Summary
  • Due to demand for round-the-clock services and production,a growing proportion of the workforce is engaged in nonstandard hours—outside the traditional 9 am–5 pm,Monday–Friday work week. Often referred to collectively as shiftwork (Härmä, 1998), such schedules involve long and irregular hours, frequently including combinations of early morning, evening, and night shifts. The prevalence of shiftwork has been estimated at approximately 20% in urban economies (Rajaratnam &​ Arendt, 2001). Shiftwork disrupts our naturally diurnal circadian rhythms, such that shiftworkers (particularly on night shift) must work while biologically primed for sleep and sleep while primed for wake. This results in sleep of reduced quantity and quality compared to those on standard schedules (Åkerstedt, 2003;Rajaratnam &​ Arendt, 2001).
