Journal CME: Evaluating the quality and duration of sleep using actigraphy in petroleum industry shift workers

ARTICLE: Evaluating the quality and duration of sleep using actigraphy in petroleum industry shift workers

Increased use of shift work has led to more and more people working outside a traditional daytime schedule. Shift work can have devastating effects on employees’ quality of life and sleep, leading to negative consequences for individuals and their families. This study evaluates the effect of different shift schedules (seven days/ seven nights, fixed-day or fixed-night, and stand-by shift) on the sleep of oil rig shift workers. Participants and methods: In this cross-sectional study, 43 offshore workers from the National Iranian Drilling Company were enrolled. Subjects were asked to complete a questionnaire package consisting of the Epworth Sleepiness scale and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Changes in sleep patterns were measured using actigraphy for different shift schedules.
