Currently, shift work is common in the working population in various industries. Work shifts are known to have several health effects, (eg fatigue, anxiety, cardiovascular problems, and gastrointestinal problems) as well as increased accident rates. However, there are not many studies that specifically investigate the difference between day shifts and night shifts, and long shifts in reported fatigue. Relevant studies of shift and fatigue work between 2010 and 2016 were obtained through electronic databases. 11 The journal meets the inclusion criteria. The journal used in this literature study uses a cross sectional research design with data collection through questionnaire, measurement of fatigue level with reaction time and speed and accuracy test of Wiersma boundor. This literature study concludes that the night shift has the greatest fatigue rate followed by the afternoon shift and morning shift. Hence, this study suggests to reduce the prevalence of fatigue that can cause accidents for night shift.
