As you would be aware there is a lot of attention on suicide rates FIFO workers. As part of the Mining and Construction Jobs in Western Australia Facebook Group, I ran a poll to identify what people in the industry identified as being the major contributing factors to depression it was interesting to note that coming in 1st with 90 votes as of the 2/7/19, 4.37pm was Long Rosters followed by Negative Workplace Environment at 69 votes, and coming in 3rd place Lack of Job Stability with 59 votes. It was also surprising to notice that money or wages was not a listed factor.
