Shift work, long and variable working hours are related to a wide range of health problems ranging from disturbed sleep and accidents to cancer, cardiovascular and maternal health and work-life balance. Knowledge on the health aspects of shift work has increased rapidly during the last few years greatly due to new data from Nordic countries.
