This erratum concerns the numbers in table 3 regarding participation in health promotion in a subsample of participants. The reported numbers in the original report are identical to the numbers in the whole study population reported in table 2.

The changes imply that we find a significantly lower participation in health screenings among fixed night workers (OR 0.3, 95% CI 0.1–0.8) and a significantly higher participation in health promotion activities involving contact with health professionals among employees working variable shifts without night work (OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.1–2.8).

These changes do not alter the conclusion that – contrary to our hypothesis – overall, day and shift workers did not differ systematically with respect to their participation in workplace health promotion once it was available to them.
