Abstract:
The goal of this study was to provide new knowledge on the long-term effects of abnormal work schedules on perceived sleep quality, quality of life, metabolic dysfunctions, and cognitive health, in order to contribute to knowledge about how abnormal work schedules affect health and safety, and to contribute to updating practical recommendations concerning this.

Data was taken from the VISAT longitudinal study (a French prospective study examining how working conditions and age interact to influence a wide range of health resources, including sleep quality and cognitive efficiency). The initial sample was collected in 1996 (t1, first data collection). It was composed of 3,237 present and former wage earners of both genders, aged from 32 to 62 years old. Two follow-ups took place in 2001 (t2) and 2006 (t3).
