Avoid early morning starts and try to fit shift times in with the availability of public transport. • Limit shifts to 12 h including overtime, or to 8 h if they are night shifts and/or the work is demanding, monotonous, dangerous and/or safety critical. • Encourage workers to take regular breaks and allow some choice as to when they are taken. • Consider the needs of vulnerable workers, such as young or aging workers and new and expectant mothers.
