Mental health conditions affect 1 in 5 Australians annually
CS Health understands that maintaining a healthy lifestyle as a mine worker can often be challenging.
Long hours, rotating shifts and panel rosters can result in any basic routine, healthy eating and regular exercise being thrown out the door. In fact, the industry today is facing an obesity epidemic, with over 83% of NSW coal miners classified as overweight or obese.
Mental health and fatigue are other priority health issues for mine workers. Mental health issues affect one in five Australians annually, and fatigue is thought to be responsible for up to one in five car accidents.
It’s important to look after your health. Please don’t hesitate to seek professional advice and support if you have questions or concerns about your health or the health of a friend or family member.
Contact CS Health if you have any questions or would like to talk to a specialist occupational physician.
