Shift Workers Are at Greater Risk of Injury on the Job

If you are working early in the morning, late night, or non-stop physical labor for hours on end, you are more likely to be hurt at work. Shift work has a way of interrupting natural rhythms of rest and sleep and contribute to the development of various medical problems, including insomnia, depression, cardiovascular disease, and more. There is even a condition known as Shift Work Sleep Disorder, in which a person exhibits the following symptoms:

  • Sleep that is not restful
  • Inability to focus
  • Agitation and irritability
  • Fatigue

In addition to creating medical problems, Shift Work Sleep Disorder can have adverse effects on the whole person, even affecting the social, romantic, and financial arenas of life. It can also put you at a greater risk of serious injury while working, because it makes you more likely to slip and fall, hurt yourself using machinery, or otherwise injure yourself.

Workers’ Compensation for Shift Work Sleep Disorder

When your physical well-being is sacrificed in order to perform the duties required by your job, it may fall to your employer to help you pursue the treatment you need and make up for any losses you have already experienced. This is where workers’ compensation comes in. Because your well-being is important to us, our Greenville workers’ comp attorneys at Christian & Christian are here to help you file your claim properly and make your case well.
