Supporting London's Growing Population of Night Shift Workers: The Effects of Sleep Disruption and Proven Coping Methods

A roundtable discussion reflecting on the rising demand for night shift work across the UK and drawing awareness to the effects of sleep disruption on an individual’s health and wellbeing. The event will bring together union representatives, policy makers, researchers and sleep scientists to share new knowledge, explore ways to lessen the negative impact of shift work on the individual and outline the subsequent employer benefits that introducing such practices can have.

Topics include:

  • Where is the demand for shift work, in what industry and region, and is there a demographic analysis of this population?
  • What physiological, societal and economic pressures is a night shift worker under in addition to or different from that of a day shift worker?
  • What are the current guidelines for employers of night shift workers?
  • What can be done to support shift workers both in and outside of the workplace to lessen short term and long term negative side effects of sleep disruption and sleep deprivation? Are there any case studies?
  • What are the benefits to an employer of raising an awareness of the issues amongst their workforce and introducing new workplace policies?
