Long Island Federation of Labor and NYCOSH Forum: Strategies to Address the Hazards of Non-traditional Work Schedules

NYSUT Nassau Regional Office 1000 Woodbury Road, Suite 214 Woodbury, NY, 11797

Shift workers and former shift workers have shown more signs of ill health than people on fixed day work. Short-term effects associated with night work and other schedules outside the traditional 9am to 5pm include gastrointestinal symptoms, increased risk of injuries and accidents, and insomnia. Long-term effects include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and depression, among others. Join us to learn more about shiftwork hazards and to discuss strategies to support the health and safety of shift workers.
