Shiftwork is challenging.
Alert@Work helps both shiftworkers and their managers address and overcome shiftwork challenges.
Shiftworkers learn how to sleep better and manage fatigue. Managers learn to develop shift schedules and human resource and operational policies that support shiftworkers.
Together we can...
Improve health, safety and performance - Reduce turnover, absenteeism and health costs.
Ensure a Better Life for Shiftworkers – Easier Life for Managers.
“I’ve been a shift worker for 20 years, so I thought it would be a waste of time, but I’ve already learned more in the first hour than I thought I would learn in the whole presentation.” BP, Durango, CO
“Everyone that does shift work should have this information. Wished I could have taken it many years ago.” Debra, Saskatoon Health Region
"My sister is using your resources to create better sleep habits and is now feeling better moving from night shifts to day shifts or vice versa. I have also referred your resources to several clients." Lori B., Safety and Human Resources Consultant, Halifax, Canada

We offer practical solutions – if it doesn’t fit with a shift workers’ schedule or lifestyle or an organization’s operations, it's just a waste of time. Experience has led us to an understanding of what is practical, but yet reflects the best expertise on the subject.
We offer a wider range of relevant content. Shiftworkers have a primary interest in sleep, diet and family strategies but we go beyond the basics and provide information about common sleep disorders and strategies for maintaining alertness and overcoming sleepiness and fatigue while at work or driving.
We also have a broad knowledge of health and what is required for well-being and we apply this to the needs of shiftworkers.
We specialize in circadian rhythm disorders. Giving information about shiftwork is only relevant if it is based on knowledge of circadian rhythms and circadian type. We incorporate this information in a simple to understand explanation so that shift workers can work ‘with’ their body and not against it.
For those shift workers who are having more than the usual challenges with shift work, we have developed an assessment to determine the root of their difficulty and their ability to adapt to the rigors of shiftwork. We can make recommendations regarding any accommodations that may be necessary.
From power generation to gas and oil distribution, manufacturing, transportation and health care, we are there – helping organizations be more successful by incorporating sleep and fatigue management into their training, operations and health and wellness programs.
