Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Shift workers commonly experience insufficient sleep due to working varied shifts. As such, they may experience sleepiness while driving, increasing their risk for crash-related injuries and fatalities. Yet, determinants for fitness to drive in shift workers with insufficient sleep have not been synthesized. This systematic literature review synthesizes and critically appraises peer-reviewed literature on fitness to drive and driving performance in shift workers with insufficient sleep.
