The side effects of working in shifts have been documented in various studies and in the latest study, published in the journal Occupational Medicine, the team analysed data from 21 earlier studies involving over 320,000 people and nearly 20,000 cases of coronary heart disease.
People who work in shifts are at heightened danger of heart disease and the risk increases with years they work in shifts, finds the Chinese study of more than 300,000 people.
Shift work “can earn more profit, but it can also cause harm to the health of employees. Thus, employers should reduce shift work as much as possible,” said lead author Weihong Chen, a researcher in occupational and environmental health.
While the reason is unknown, disruption in the normal sleep-wake cycle could increase stress.
The data founds shift workers were 13% more likely to develop coronary heart disease than daytime workers, although the study was not designed to prove the cause and effect
For every year spent working in shifts, there was a nearly one per cent increase in the risk of coronary heart disease, the report said.
Employers should pay attention to staff members who are experiencing symptoms of heart problems as well as those with a family history of heart disease. Employers could provide health promotion, such as information on how to prevent and deal with heart disease.
