Background. As a previously unresearched occupational group, the overall aim of this research was to establish the prevalence of stress and associated outcomes in Her Majesty’s Coastguard (HMCG). Material and methods. Data were collected from 282 coastguards by paper questionnaire and compared with general UK working population data from the Bristol Stress and Health at Work Study (SHAW) and the Psychosocial Working Conditions Survey (PWC), 2009. Results. The level of high stress reported in HMCG (11%) was significantly lower than the comparison data (17%). The level of depression found was significantly higher. Conclusions. HMCG had lower levels of stress than the general UK working population, due, in part to high levels of social support. Data suggests HMCG worthy of study for both negative effects of stress and stress reduction elsewhere.
