and taking a shift
If you relieve someone at work, you take over what they were doing. This happens usually when people do shift work. This type of work is common in places like power stations which have to be kept running 24 hours a day. Workers tend to work 8 hour shifts. One set of workers works from 6am till 2pm. They are then relieved by the next shift who work from 2 till 10 and these are followed by the night shift from 10pm till 6am.
