One strategy to reduce the health and safety problems associated with shift work is to improve the work schedules. This study in progress is examining pre- and post-intervention survey data from work schedule re-design interventions at five industrial sites. Most original work schedules were eight-hour weekly backward rotations; the new schedules were all 12-hour shifts with fixed or two-week rotations. This poster will report the gastrointestinal outcomes, which include a GI symptom scale from the Standard Shiftwork Index and use of medications for indigestion, heartburn or ulcers. Research questions include: 1) How do workers on 12-hour two week rotations and eight-hour weekly backward rotations compare? 2) How do workers on eight-hour fixed day, evening and night shifts compare? 3) How do workers on 12-hour fixed day and night shifts compare? 4) How do workers on eight-hour weekly backward rotations, 12-hour fixed days, and 12-hour fixed nights compare? The surveys were answered anonymously with no identifying numbers. The pre-intervention surveys numbered 878 and the post-intervention surveys were 815. The analysis for the independent data uses multiple regression to control statistically for other risk factors including: demographic factors, individual sleep characteristics, lifestyle factors, and other work related factors.
