The present study was carried out to assess and compare the health problems experienced by day and shift workers in Visakhapatnam. The research was conducted on a sample of 70 software engineers, in the age group of 22-33 years in Bhubaneshwar, Orissa. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely an absence of disease. It provides the ability to lead a socially and economically productive life. So a healthy individual is free from disease; in a state of normal functioning.

Majority of shift workers were reported to become workaholic. Majority of shift workers reported impairment in social leisure activities, personal leisure, activities and ability to form and maintain close relationship with family members compared today workers.
