Workplace injury records indicate that more injuries occur on night shifts than during day shifts. There are obvious hazards connected with working at night (such as lack of light), but some problems are less obvious. For instance, because changes in weather patterns are difficult to notice at night, rain can quickly cause slick surfaces.
