Different shift work types are associated with adverse outcomes across the worker career. This study illustrates that shift work exposure duration and the healthy worker effect have an impact on these findings, probably resulting in an underestimation of the results. Measures to prevent adverse outcomes should be tailored for different types of shift work across the work career.
