FIFO workers/families needed for surveys

| Share

At Mining Family Matters we're always happy to promote research projects, because we know that comprehensive studies can ultimately be used to improve the lives of mining/resources workers and their families. Here are two studies that need your help:

Diabetes in Queensland FIFO workers

Researchers at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane are studying Type 2 diabetes in FIFO miners living in south-east Queensland. They're looking into diagnosis and management among miners and their families, workplaces and communities.

If you've been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes or might be at risk (i.e. don't eat fruit/veg or exercise every day, have a waist measurement over 100cm, smoke tobacco OR have a family history of diabetes), they'd love to speak to you and your partner.

Communication technology for FIFO/DIDO workers

Researchers at Central Queensland University are looking into the availability and effectiveness of communication technology for FIFO and DIDO workers.

The project aims to establish why workers choose certain modes of communication and which methods work best.
