Ergonomics in Extended Hours Operations (PDF)
How to reduce the frequency and severity of ergonomic injuries at shiftwork operations
Until recently, there has been little information about how ergonomic interventions may need refining to better serve the special needs of the extended hours workplace. Equally, it is also becoming more common for facility or corporate managers to turn to ergonomists for advice on shift scheduling and extended hours issues.
This study combines third party scientific research with data and experience collected by Circadian in 20 years of consulting, to introduce the ergonomist to the extended hour workplace, the special challenges, the ergonomics of shift scheduling, and the potential solutions for extended hours operations.
