The WTS promotes research related to working hours, health and safety, and facilitates networks between researchers, organisations, and the general public.

The Working Time Society (WTS) and the Scientific Committee on “Shiftwork and Working Time” of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH-SC SW&WT) are twin associations focused on studies, research and practices on psycho-social aspects and health problems connected with night and shift work and, more generally, with working hours.

The two associations operate in very strict connection, sharing the main officers (chair and secretary) and the most important scientific events, with the explicit aim of avoiding useless or distorted competition, but keeping together people with different scientific backgrounds, job positions and interests, for a factual contribution to improving comprehension and management of working time organisation issues.

The aim is the improvement of workers’ health and well-being via proper preventive (e.g. flexible working hours, ergonomic shift schedules) and compensative measures (e.g. work and social organisation, counselling, medical surveillance).
