Changes in work shift system promotes better work environment

Shift work has been linked to certain chronic diseases and illnesses. Likewise, long-term night shift work has to a certain extent demonstrated negative influence on people’s medical condition.

We want to contribute positively to our employees’ health and eliminate these negative side effects from 24/7 production. In other words being sustainable and acting responsible.

At our facility in Germany, we invited professionals specialised within this field – and asked them to develop a forward rotating alternating shift system – for the benefit of our employees – and thereby us as a company, our products and our customers.

The new shift system is now implemented. One of the changes is that Sunday is always work-free day for all colleagues. Our new rotating shift system rolls every 4 weeks. Our employees reports about better health and improved motivation.
