The purpose of this study was to investigate the current status of post-traumatic stress (PTS), job satisfaction, and associated factors with job satisfaction among 119 rescue crews.
The study subjects were 507 rescue crews who worked in G Metropolitan City and J province. General characteristics, job-related characteristics, PTS, and job satisfaction were collected by self-reported questionnaires via official e-mail. Job satisfaction by subjects' characteristics was tested using t-test, ANOVA, and multiple linear regression analysis.
Of 507 rescue crews, the overall PTS scores and job satisfaction score were 13.58±12.99 and 85.19±13.37, respectively. In multiple linear regression analyses, job satisfaction scores were significantly lower in subjects with fair (β=-3.53, 95% CI=-5.89~-1.17) or poor (β=-7.69, 95% CI=-11.67~-3.71) self-rated health and with longer duration of career (β=-3.53, 95% CI=-6.62~-0.44). Regarding rescue field related characteristics, witness injury of co-workers (β=-3.02, 95% CI=-5.61~-0.44), obvious dead treatment (β=-3.60, 95% CI=-6.37~-0.83), and PTS (β=-4.21, 95% CI=-7.56~-0.88) showed association with lower job satisfaction.
Job satisfaction showed association with general characteristics, field related factors, and PTS. Risk reduction of rescue field and management of PTS will help to increase the job satisfaction of 119 rescue crews.
