Determination of shift work impacts over beverage shift workers

Emekli, Hamdi Erdi
Working life has been an inevitable piece of human history since ancient times. Following Industrial Revolution, industries searched for more resources for their productions and more time to work in order to produce. At the end, shift work systems were developed for continous production and many people around the world have been working in this system since then. However, human body is designed to live in cooperation with circadian rhythm and it has many effects over the body once the rhythm is diminished. Beverage industry is also one of those industries that has to produce continuously. This study aims to observe possible impacts of shift working on workers of a beverage factory based on their age, marital status, work experience and shift work experience. To achieve the aim of this research, the Survey of Shiftworkers (SOS) was used. This survey, shared with employees via Google Forms, was completed by 118 people and the survey results were evaluated with SPSS 22.0 program. The survey results showed that age, marital status and duration of shift work are the dominant determinants, especially on health and social-familial effects of shift work.
