Workers ‘suffer from lack of sleep’

A sleep deprivation “epidemic” is spreading through the British workforce, with few people getting a good night’s rest, according to a new report.

Police officers, doctors, nurses and tradesmen and women are worst-affected, sleeping for only around six hours a night, research found.

Hotel chain Travelodge surveyed 5,200 professional workers and found that 97% slept for less than eight hours a night.

The company estimated that most employees are losing more than one complete night’s sleep every seven days, equivalent to two and a half years in a working lifetime.

Company doctors had the least sleep, at 5.9 hours a night, although 8% said they managed only four hours, equivalent to seven years during the course of their career.
