Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine the long term health effects of a shift change from a fast forward-rotating to a slowly backward-rotating schedule in an industrial company. The study is a follow-up of a study that was made in 2004 when this intervention was made. Data was collected using questionnaires covering subjective health, sleep and fatigue, need for recovery, work-family interface and job demands, control and support. A within-group comparison, for the 39 shift workers who had participated and could be identified 2004 and 2012 was made as well as a between-group comparison between the 118 shift workers who participated 2004 and the 82 shift workers who took part in 2012. Mann Whitney U-test and Wilcoxon Signed Rank test... (More)

In the within-group comparison significant deteriorations were only found in the subscales KSQ-sleepiness and SOFI-lack of energy, and more A larger number of employees stated that they needed two days or more for recovery. None of the remaining 16 variables showed a significant change though and these results indicate that the positive results derived from the shift schedule change eight years ago are still valid.

Abstract (Swedish)
Studiens syfte var att undersöka de långsiktiga hälsoeffekterna av en skiftschemaförändring i på ett industriföretag, från ett snabbt framåtroterande schema till ett långsamt bakåtroterande schema. Undersökningen bygger på en studie som gjordes 2004 i samband med denna intervention. Data samlades in med hjälp av formulär som mätte subjektiv hälsa, sömn och trötthet, behov av återhämtning, obalans mellan arbets- och privatliv, psykosocial arbetsbelastning samt dygnsrytm. En inomgruppsjämförelse, med de 39 skiftarbetare som deltagit och kunde identifieras både 2004 och 2012, samt en mellangruppsjämförelse mellan de 118 skiftarbetare som deltog 2004 respektive de 82 skiftarbetare som deltog 2012 utfördes.

Mann Whitney U-test och Wilcoxon Signed Rank test användes för den statistiska analysen, som inte visade på några signifikanta skillnader vid mellangruppsjämförelsen. Vid inomgruppsjämförelsen uppmättes signifikanta försämringar endast för delskalorna KSQ störd sömn och SOFI orkeslöshet, och det var fler anställda som angav att de behövde två dagar eller mer för att känna sig återhämtad/utvilad. För de övriga 16 utfallsmåtten påvisades dock inga signifikanta skillnader och studiens slutsats var att de positiva förändringar som följde av schemaändringen, i stort sett, håller i sig åtta år senare.
