Fly-in, fly-out parliamentary inquiry: AMAQ cites mental health concerns over compulsory FIFO

The Australian Medical Association Queensland (AMAQ) says compulsory fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) work practices create significant problems for families and towns.

The AMAQ has made a submission to the Queensland parliamentary inquiry investigating FIFO work practices.

The organisation, which represents the state's medical practitioners, said it had been advised that most FIFO workers who suffered from depression and anxiety were worried about relationships.
