Abstract

This study of 1,542 respondents investigated the impact of COVID-19 on police and paramedics from across Australia. It also surveyed child protection workers and health workers from one state of Australia. The online survey investigated issues such as levels of stress, depression, anxiety and workplace burnout. It also researched potential contributors to workplace wellbeing during COVID-19, examining issues such as family circumstances, workplace consultation and communication and support offered by peers, workmates, family and friends. COVID-19 was associated with significantly increased stress, workload and family demands of the vast majority of respondents.
