    Working Hours and Health

    16th – 18th of May 2022
    Folkhälsan, Helsinki, Finland

    Shift work and demanding working hours are related to a wide range of public health problems ranging from disturbed sleep and accidents to chronic health problems and challenges in work-life balance. Knowledge on the health aspects of shift work has increased rapidly during the last few year, also due to new data from the Nordic countries. Information on actions to alleviate the health consequences of demanding working hours are timely. Flexible working hour models in expert work have become more common and raise new questions and solutions for prevention. This course will discuss current issues related to working hours, future research and prevention methods.

    Main topics:

    • Night shift work, long and irregular working hours, prevalence and exposure assessment
    • Research methods
    • Working hours, health and well-being
    • Shift scheduling and other countermeasures
    • Specific target groups
    • A satellite symposium to working hour researchers (WINC symposium) after the NIVA course

    Participants at the NIVA Working Hours and Health -course will have the possibility to attend a WINC seminar on Thursday, 19th of May 2022, free of charge (including the seminar lunch).
