Do you have night shift workers in your workplace?

An important study at Monash University is seeking interest from companies employing night shift workers to participate in an upcoming trial commencing February 2022.
 
The trial aims to improve workers' body clocks' adaptation to shift work, their sleep and their health (e.g., fatigue, mental wellbeing). It also expects benefits to the workplace in the form of increased alertness as well as improved workplace performance and safety.

The research procedure will be adapted to comply with each workplace's operational requirements.  This includes timing participation to suit the organisation (e.g., avoiding overly busy/ peak periods if needed) and employees' rosters.
 
The research team has had proven success in improving workplace safety and alertness, and employee sleep and wellbeing in various shift working sectors, such as manufacturing, transport and hospitals.
 
Earlier work by this team was presented to Central Safety Group by Dr Tracey Sletten in August 2019. It attracted a lot of interest and is readily accessible to financial members: The Real Impact of Shift Work and Workplace Fatigue  –log in first.
 
This study will be building on the latest findings and recommendations in this area outlined by Tracey.
