Join us for a discussion symposium forum, “Working Hours, Sleep & Fatigue: Meeting the Needs of American Workers & Employers”, on September 13-14, 2019 in Couer D’Alene, Idaho. Taking place after the 24th International Shift Work and Working Time SymposiumExternal, the forum will present and encourage discussion of research gaps/needs and effective countermeasures related to working hours, sleep, and fatigue among U.S. workers and employers. Everyone interested in worker safety including researchers, academicians, safety professionals, labor union representatives, industry leaders, policy makers, government representatives are invited to attend, listen and share their views on this important topic.

Working nonstandard shifts can lead to changes in sleep behaviors which can affect concentration, reaction time, or decision-making abilities. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is dedicated to reducing the health and safety risks associated with shift work and long work hours, in addition to promoting the health and well-being of workers in nonstandard schedules.
