Abstract

Introduction: Among the professions that are impacted by the work context, the military firefighter is mentioned, who carries out activities with danger, physical and emotional exhaustion, which can have an impact on quality of life. Objective: To analyze the relation between quality of sleep and quality of life of Brazilian Military Firefighters. Methods: Research with a quantitative, transversal, correlational and analytical approach, carried out with 129 military firefighters working in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, that had been performing operational and administrative assistance for more than six months. Questionnaires containing socio-occupational and lifestyle data, the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and the World Health Organization Quality of Life to assess quality of life were used. Descriptive and analytical statistics were used. Results: The analysis of quality of life shows a higher average in the physical domain (77.52), a direct correlation between the physical domain and the other quality of life domains, and inverse correlations between global sleep quality and the domains of quality of life. Regarding sleep quality, a higher percentage of poor classification (71.3%) is observed in military firefighters. Conclusion: There was a predominance of workers with poor sleep quality and good perception of general quality of life. An inverse correlation was identified between sleep quality and the domains of quality of life. When comparing quality of life with sleep quality domains, a significant difference was identified.
