Abstract:
This report found that thirty percent of the FIFO workforce suffer from mental health problems and are at a greater risk of committing suicide.  It found the current legislative framework for safety at mine sites to be confusing and complicated.  Recommendations included a new duty of care provision with respect to accommodation facilities, addressing fatigue risks resulting from compression rosters, and training in mental health literacy.
