Abstract
In today's society, services around the clock are needed from many types of workers and at times long work hours are not avoidable. As a result, shift work and long work hours are common in many workplaces. Research evidence is building that these types of work schedules are associated with several health and safety risks for workers. The risks also extend to their families, employers, and society when they make fatigue-related errors or show declines in performance. This chapter will discuss the wide range or risks that are linked to these schedules, theories about why these risks occur, and strategies to reduce risks.
