Abstract
The status is reviewed of a study conducted at Saint Louis University to identify potential shift work hazards. A list of papers and publications resulting from this study and a listing of all participating labor organizations are provided. Survey, clinical, laboratory, and inteview data are being collected and evaluated. Preliminary analyses of selected variables from the first 1,200 subjects indicate that reported sleep times of these workers are shorter than those reported in other related literature, with night workers showing the shortest sleep times. Sleep habits of workers on changing shift patterns were similar to those of steady shift workers on comparable shifts. The author concludes that findings do not support the hypothesis that changing shift workers fully adapt to shift work or mainfest normal sleep behavior, regardless of how long they have been on their present schedule. A provisional hypothesis is advanced that shift workers, as a group, exhibit the symptoms of chronic sleep deprivation resulting from the inflexible times of their work and the demands of social responsibilities.
