Working Hours and Health

Topeliuksenkatu 20

Shift work and demanding working hours are related to a wide range of public health problems ranging from disturbed sleep and accidents to chronic health problems and challenges in work-life balance. Knowledge on the health aspects of shift work has increased rapidly during the last few year, also due to new data from the Nordic countries. Information on actions to alleviate the health consequences of demanding working hours are timely. Flexible working hour models in expert work have become more common and raise new questions and solutions for prevention. This course will discuss current issues related to working hours, future research and prevention methods.
