Hello NIGHT SHIFT!!!

9 05 2008

WHAAATTTT THE F***!!!

Absolute revamp… We’re going back to night shift. We all hated the change schedule specially when it was a forced change schedule. Series of unpredictable events happens now in the company where I belong. This is simply because of the change in management.

Before SHE come, everything was working fine… After our Canadian manager left to Barrie, this lady takes over… We didn’t know this is going to be the start of something new… something that will make our heads turn 360 degrees. SH**… this really makes our head spin…

From day shift we will now move to the very very very nice night shift… our previous schedule was 6:30 am to 3:30 pm, now, we will be on 8 pm to 5 am shift… Imagine that?? after controlling all the shift bid, she still have control over our schedule. Which we beleive is against COM…

Oh well, I guess we don’t have any coice at all…

“It’s like: Take the schedule or LEAVE!

Overnight shift to be classified as ‘probable’ cancer cause

1 12 2007

Awww!!! Health hazard!!! — night shift pa naman ako…

Like UV rays and diesel exhaust fumes, working the graveyard shift will soon be listed as a “probable” cause of cancer.

It is a surprising step validating a concept once considered wacky. And it is based on research that finds higher rates of breast and prostate cancer among women and men whose work day starts after dark.

Next month, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer arm of the World Health Organization, will add overnight shift work as a probable carcinogen.

The American Cancer Society says it will likely follow. Up to now, the U.S. organization has considered the work-cancer link to be “uncertain, controversial or unproven.”

The higher cancer rates don’t prove working overnight can cause cancer. There may be other factors common among graveyard shift workers that raise their risk for cancer.
