The prevalence of shift work disorder (SWD) has been studied using self‐reported data and the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, Second Edition (ICSD‐2) criteria. We examined the prevalence in relation to ICSD‐2 and ICSD‐3 criteria, work schedules and the number of non‐day shifts (work outside 06:00–18:00 hours) using objective working‐hours data. Secondly, we explored a minimum cut‐off for the occurrence of SWD symptoms. Hospital shift workers without (n = 1,813) and with night… Expand
Prevalence of Probable Shift Work Disorder in Non-Standard Work Schedules and Associations with Sleep, Health and Safety Outcomes: A Cross-Sectional Analysis
TLDR
The prevalence of p SWD in employees engaged in non-standard work schedules is influenced by selection of factors used to quantify pSWD, including sleep/wake patterns, which highlights the importance of intervention and management of this under-recognised sleep disorder. Expand
Changes in work schedule affect the prevalence of shift work disorder among Norwegian nurses – a two year follow-up study
TLDR
Changes in night work exposure were the strongest predictors for both recovering from or developing Shift Work Disorder from baseline to follow-up and imply that unfavorable work schedules play a role in the development of sleep problems among nurses. Expand
Employees with shift work disorder experience excessive sleepiness also on non-work days: a cross-sectional survey linked to working hours register in Finnish hospitals
TLDR
The results suggest that especially employees with SWD-I may need longer time to overcome excessive sleepiness than allowed by their roster, and may need more time to recover from symptoms of SWD between work shifts. Expand
Prevalence of Shift Work Disorder: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The prevalence of SWD was high across the included studies and was partly explained by diagnostic criteria and sample size, and there is a need for validation and standardization of assessment methodology as well as agreement in terms of sample restrictions. Expand
Characteristics of working hours and the risk of occupational injuries among hospital employees: a case-crossover study
TLDR
The results indicate an increased occupational injury risk during the evening shifts and during work days following night shifts, with the risk increasing according to the number of evening but not night shifts. Expand
Salivary Biomarkers and Work-Related Stress in Night Shift Workers
TLDR
Evaluating the associations between work activities, shift work effects and stress-related responses in 106 dock workers enrolled in southeast Italy found Alpha-amylase showed a significant negative correlation with the effort/reward imbalance score and was proposed as a sensitive and non-invasive biomarker of work-related stress.

Cognitive behavioural therapy interventions for insomnia among shift workers: RCT in an occupational health setting
TLDR
Alleviation of mood symptoms seemed to be the main added value of the group-based CBT-I intervention compared to the control intervention, and these participants benefitted more from the interventions than the SWD participants did. Expand
Insomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, anxiety, depression and socioeconomic status among customer service employees in Canada
TLDR
Insomnia, sleepiness and anxiety are more prevalent for full- time employees compared with part-time employees, while depression was similarly higher for Canadian and immigrants compared to international students. Expand
How to schedule night shift work in order to reduce health and safety risks
TLDR
It is recommended that in order to reduce the risk of injuries and possibly breast cancer, night shift schedules have: (i) ≤3 consecutive night shifts; (ii) shift intervals of ≥11 hours; and (iii) ≤9 hours shift duration. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that three symptom-based questions used in the present study adequately assess shift work disorder in epidemiological studies. Expand
Factors Associated With Shift Work Disorder in Nurses Working With Rapid-Rotation Schedules in Japan: The Nurses’ Sleep Health Project
TLDR
It is indicated that SWD might be associated with reduced health-related QOL and decreased work performance in shiftworking nurses on rapid-rotation schedules and missing napping opportunities during night work, long nighttime working hours, and the delay of circadian rhythms are associated with the occurrence of SWD. Expand
Predictors of shift work disorder among nurses: a longitudinal study.
TLDR
The main aim of the present study was to explore predictors of developing shift work disorder (SWD) among Norwegian nurses using a longitudinal design and showed significant risks of having SWD at follow-up and the following variables measured at baseline. Expand
Validity of self-reported exposure to shift work
TLDR
The validity of self-reported assessment of shift work varies between work schedules, and exposure misclassification in self- reported data may contribute to bias towards the null in shift work without night shifts. Expand
Validation of a questionnaire to screen for shift work disorder.
TLDR
This Shiftwork Disorder Screening Questionnaire may be appropriate for use in primary care settings to aid in the diagnosis of SWD. Expand

TLDR
PNWs are more often satisfied with their colleagues and autonomy at work than DWs or SWs but face workplace violence remarkably more often, and reported contradictory differences in sleep quality. Expand
Shift work disorder among oil rig workers in the North Sea.
TLDR
The prevalence of SWD was relatively high among shift workers in the North Sea and individuals with SWD reported poorer sleep quality and more subjective health complaints in the non-work period than shift workers not having SWD. Expand
Shift work and sleep disorder comorbidity tend to go hand in hand
TLDR
The results showed that the shift workers experienced significantly more difficulties with the variability of their sleep times, reported more napping and considered themselves more as poor sleepers than the day workers, and shift work appeared associated with a significantly higher prevalence of the clinical, International Classification of Sleep Disorders' defined symptoms of nearly all main sleep disorders.

TLDR
It is suggested that susceptibility to SWD in the manufacturing industry may be associated with environmental and somatic factors related to falling asleep. Expand

TLDR
The Ford Insomnia Response to Stress Test (FIRST) accurately identifies a focused target population in which the premorbid psychobiological processes complicit in SWD onset and progression, as well as shift work-related depression and anxiety changes, can be better investigated, thus improving future preventative efforts.
