MRÁZOVÁ, Veronika
The work process is a significant component of every person's lifestyle, as we spend a large amount of time at work. It is therefore logical that the characteristics of the job affect the quality of life. This thesis explores the impact of shift work on the quality of life. Around 20 % of all workers worldwide work in shifts, which is a significant part of the population.

The theoretical part of the thesis defines the basic terms and informs about research and conclusions related to irregular shift system, night work, and sleep deficiency. The practical part of the work is the evaluation of a questionnaire survey among the employees of Budějovice Budvar, n.p., who work in different shift regimes. The WHOQOL - BREF questionnaire was used for the investigation.

Eating habits of shiftworkers
The bachelor thesis contains a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part describes basic diet components, a large part is dedicated to circadian rhythm and its influence on our health. Health risks connected to shiftwork are also mentioned. Further, a hormone known as melatonin that plays a significant role in our sleep, is described. The objective of this bachelor thesis was to map out eating habits of people whose work is run in shifts. The survey was processed using a qualitative method. Data was collected using semi-structured interviews with questions prepared beforehand and a record of weekly diet plans. Interviews were carried out with 10 individuals of medical staff whose work run in 12 full-hour shifts. The results prove that individuals working in shifts include meat and dairy products most often as the source of protein. Protein intake is higher during day shift. Intake of carbohydrates most often comes from bread and side dishes that are a part of meals. Intake of legumes is seldom included in the respondents´ diets. During night shift, smaller portions are consumed and intake of liquids is higher during day shift. Out of the informants´ diet plans we found out that intake of fiber is low. Snacks usually consist of fruit, dairy products or bread and something. The survey has proven that lunch offer is taken advantage of by an insignificant number of informants, dinner is taken advantage of in a minimum of cases. We have also found out that most informants consume food up to midnight during night shifts and until the end of their shift they consume only liquids. Energetic drinks are not an important part of drinking regime in shiftwork. Coffee intake is higher during day shift. The results of this bachelor thesis may serve both, the lay and expert public. Creating an informative leaflet with ditary habit recommendations is a part of this thesis.
