Fly in, Fly out Workers
Working FIFO has its challenges for lots of reasons. Keeping fit is just one of them.
Fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers have high levels of lifestyle-related health risks such as drinking, smoking and being overweight, a study by the WA Department of Health has found. When compared with 913 shift workers and 10,613 people otherwise employed in WA, 380 FIFOs identified in the study using data from the WA Health and Wellbeing Surveillance System exhibited more health problems than others. The workers who spend one to six weeks living and working on site, an average of more than 11 hours a day, were found to drink more alcohol (around 4 a day) more often (3 days a week) and were more likely to be current smokers, classified as overweight and obese.
