The significance of the work and sleep interaction has not been acknowledged. Shift work and long commutes mean that some employees don’t even have the required 11 hours away from work that would allow them to get 7-9 hours’ sleep. 20-25% of road traffic accidents are fatigue related and 24-hour shift workers who have just come off shift have 55x the risk of having an accident than someone who has just got up.
What might best practice look like for managing good sleep practice at work? The Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) and the Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM) are working together to raise awareness of mental health within the work environment. Our inaugural seminar in 2017 considered the challenges and solutions around mental health at work, the 2018 seminar focused on how health and social care professionals can best be supported to ensure a healthy and satisfying career and the 2019 seminar focused on remote, flexible and precarious working.
We are pleased to present the event programme to you.
