Working in a shifting schedule

January 16, 2008 10:17am CST
Have you experienced working in a shifting schedule? I had. I worked before in a contact center and most of the time I worked during the night, then suddenly my shift changes at day shift. After nine months I can already feel the negative effects of it to my health. Recent studies show these health risks when working in a shifting schedule. But for some people I know, they can handle this kind of job requirement. What tips can you give to maintain your health when working in these kinds of environment?

Been there done that and absolutely hated it! Luckily we are an union shop now and our days of changing shifts are over. Good luck and try to sleep when you can!

Thanks for your post whywiki. I just really can't get used to it. It's killing me softly. Oh well, one effect is that I'm still typing in this keyboard at 3 in the morning. Thanks again.
