Sažetak:
The disruptive effects of shiftwork on social and domestic life of workers are well documented. Still there are specific domains in which shiftworkers may be particularly affected by their work hours. The aim of this study was to investigate differences in several aspects of quality of life, life satisfaction and happiness between shift- and non-shiftworkers. Subjects were professionals in social care settings (e.g., nursing homes, retirement homes) from 75 cities around Croatia. Three groups were examined: shiftworkers working in schedules with the night shift (N=311), day-shiftworkers (N=207) and non-shiftworkers (N=1210). The survey consisted of several questionnaires measuring different aspects of workers life and subjective well-being. The Quality of Life Profile measures the importance, satisfaction, control and opportunities in the nine domains of life: physical, psychological and spiritual being, physical, social and community belonging, practical, leisure and growth becoming. Subjects also reported their overall happiness, percentage of being generally happy, unhappy and in neutral mood, and global life satisfaction. Demands of work were assessed in terms of subjects’ reports of effort required by the work and tiredness resulting from their work. While both groups of shiftworkers, compared to non-shiftworkers, needed more physical effort to complete their work and reported being more physically tired, no differences were found in reports of overall happiness, life satisfaction and total quality of life score. Though, night-shiftworkers reported greater percentage of time unhappy than other two groups of workers. In analyses of nine specific domains of life, importance and feeling in control were the same across the groups. However, night-shiftworkers were less satisfied with domains of spiritual being (e.g., personal values, beliefs), physical (e.g., connections with one’ s home, community) and community belonging (e.g., connections with services, events) than day-shiftworkers and non-shiftworkers. They also reported having fewer opportunities to improve their physical being (e.g. health, exercise), leisure (e.g. fun activities) and personal growth (e.g. knowledge, skills) than the other two groups. Even though quality of life scores for specific domains (i.e., combination of importance and satisfaction scores) are in range of acceptable to adequate, the domain of spiritual being was rated worse for night-shiftworkers than other groups of workers. In general, results suggest that shifts, particularly night shifts, play a role in workers’ quality of life assessments and that specific domains are more affected than others. This suggests intervention may be best targeted on specific domains
