Introduction

Modern society has been changing quite rapidly from 9–17 work to a “24-hour-society” and services are requested and provided around the clock in many jobs, e.g. police, health and elderly care, industries and transportation. Around 15–20% of the working force in the EU is estimated to work evening or night shifts (1;2).
