Circadian's Director of Research and Development to Address National Conference on Occupational Safety and Health
LEXINGTON, Mass., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees working long or irregular hours face definite challenges in maintaining a good safety and health record. As an expert in extended hours operations, Todd Dawson, Circadian's director of research and development, will address this topic at "Long Working Hours, Safety, and Health: Toward a National Research Agenda," a national occupational safety and health conference, later this month. Mr. Dawson will deliver his address, "Impact on Industry and Labor, and Their Responses," at the Conference, which is sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, University of Maryland School of Nursing, and the U.S. Department of Justice, and will be held April 29-30, 2004 at the University of Maryland School of Nursing, in Baltimore. Mr. Dawson will present case studies outlining examples of real-world cases where long hours have been used, and the guidelines, support structures, and countermeasures that were implemented to minimize the impact of the long hours. "It is crucial to realize that working these extended hours makes an impact on both the employee and the company," he said. "Solutions that seek to better manage how, when and under what circumstances long hours are worked must include both labor and management." Editor's note: Mr. Dawson is available for interview.
