Supporting Sleep Health

Employees' work and home life can influence the amount and quality of sleep they get. As a result, getting enough sleep can be a problem for anyone, no matter the job. People who work in industries that require shift work or spend long hours on the job are at a higher risk for sleep related disorders and report getting the least amount of sleep. By addressing sleep as part of a workplace health program, companies can increase safety and make employees healthier and safer at home.
