Welcome to StressCafé

This is a unique portal for gathering (and sharing) important information about work place stress  associated with different occupations in Australia and overseas. Our aim is to develop understanding of this important and growing feature of working life and to assist in the evolution of work place conditions which minimise worker stress-injury.

The StressCafé has something for everyone;
worker, academic, or researcher.

Research Results

  • Nearly 22% of workers in the AWB sample reported to experience mild, moderate or severe levels of clinical depression.

     
  • 6.8% or nearly 700, 000 Australian workers report being bullied in the last 6 months.

     
  • Work-family conflict is significantly higher in families with more than one child.

     
  • Despite rural workers reporting moderately more physical demands and work-family conflict, overall there were only small differences found between urban and rural working conditions.

     
  • Females report higher rates of bullying and for longer periods than men.
