A comparison of work-related injuries among shiftworkers and non-shiftworkers
Research has shown that the injury rate for shift workers is higher than the injury rate for non-shift workers. The aim of this report is to determine whether the elevated risk of shift work affects all groups of shift workers or only particular groups of shift workers. This is achieved by analysing statistics from a nationally representative survey that was undertaken in 2013–14. The report also analyses the characteristics and outcomes of work-related injuries to determine whether there are significant differences between shift workers and non-shift workers.
