Why shift work can be tough on your health | CBC News
Working the night shift could cause some long-term health problems, like obesity, heart attacks and strokes, as well as more immediate issues, like inattention.
Sleep For Shift Work was founded and created by accomplished clinical psychologist Jessica Palmer. Research shows that shift workers are far less likely to seek professional help for daytime insomnia and excessive sleepiness on the night shift, as compared to all other sleep disorders. In fact, most shift workers (and the companies they work for) don’t even know that there are real solutions available! Bright Minds was developed specifically so that organizations like YOURS could bring the sleep psychologist to your shift workers, and meet this very important need.
Sleep psychology developed from the need to better understand and treat sleep and sleep‐related disorders. Our focus is to help your employees to manage the demands of shift work and get the rest they need by changing their behaviour around sleep. The demand for our training program led to the development of our Bright Minds e-learning education platform. Sleep training no longer needs to be scheduled or take away from production time. Further, workers appreciate that they can access information on their own time, from their phone, tablet or computer.
The Bright Minds e-learning program will provide your shift workers with evidence-based knowledge and a step by step plan to achieve circadian alignment on the night shift. Circadian misalignment impacts worker health, safety, concentration, absenteeism, and productivity. Sleep education is essential if your employees work around the clock. The Bright Minds e-learning program will benefit your shift workers to achieve brighter minds and better lives with circadian alignment.
