Managing food on shift work
Project Reference: 10-2013
Commencement Date: February, 2014
Project Duration: 19 months
Due to changes in society and economic pressures, approximately 13% of the Irish population is employed in shift work. Internationally, shift work is reported to have negative consequences for the health of employees; however, little data exist on the lifestyle behaviours or the barriers and motivators to a healthy lifestyle among shift workers on the island of Ireland.
This project aims to develop a set of recommendations for a healthier lifestyle which will resonate with Irish shift workers, a comprehensive understanding of their eating habits and related lifestyle behaviours including the barriers and motivators to a healthy lifestyle.
