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.
for a summary of the research project and its benefits for your organisation. 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.
This study will be building on the latest findings and recommendations in this area outlined by Tracey.
