Many of us are in jobs where our shifts rotate from day to night, or where we work second or third shift regularly.
- What strategies can you use to drive safety to and from work if you’re a shift worker?
You can take effective steps to reduce your risks.
- Make it a priority to get good sleep by creating a quiet, cool, dark environment, allowing sufficient time for sleep, and trying to sleep during the same hours each day.
- Another strategy is to avoid driving home from work while sleepy. Get a ride from a family member, take a cab.
- Nap before heading home.
- Consume caffeine equivalent to two cups of coffee to help improve alertness for a short period.
