Managers, shiftworkers, union representatives, federal regulators, corporate policy-makers, and
academic experts continue to question and debate how 12-hour shifts compare to 8-hour shifts.
The most common questions managers ask include:
Are 12-hour shifts safe?
How do longer shifts impact performance, productivity, and quality?
How do 12-Hour shifts affect shiftworker health, alertness and family life?
