A longitudinal investigation of work environment stressors on the performance and wellbeing of office workers
This study uses a longitudinal within-subjects design to investigate the effects of inadequate Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) on work performance and wellbeing in a sample of 114 office workers over a period of 8 months. Participants completed a total of 2261 online surveys measuring perceived thermal comfort, lighting comfort and noise annoyance, measures of work performance, and individual state factors underlying performance and wellbeing. Characterising inadequate aspects of IEQ as environmental stressors, these stress factors can significantly reduce self-reported work performance and...
The Role of Accounting in Work Health and Safety Governance
Currently there is a lack of standardised and accepted indicators to measure the work health and safety performance of organisations and businesses at the organisational level. Work health and safety information can and is being reported on a voluntary basis, however reporting is often selective and inconsistent. This hinders comparisons of work health and safety performance and due diligence reporting over time and across organisations. These papers are a series of research papers that will inform a broader three staged policy development project taking place over the next three years. The aim...
A study of influences of the workers' compensation and injury management regulations on aviation safety at a workplace
As the aviation industries developed, so too did the recognition that there must be an effective regulatory framework to address issues related to the workers' compensation and rehabilitation. All employees would like to work and return home safely from their workplace. Therefore, the efficient management of workplace injury and disease reduces the cost of aviation operations and improves flight safety. Workers' compensation and injury management laws regulate a majority of rehabilitation and compensation issues, but achieving an injury-free workplace remains a major challenge for the regulators...
Workplace health and safety, business productivity and sustainability
Leadership and culture is one of the key Action Areas of the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022. There is strong evidence that performance is improved when organisations address work health and safety risks along with other important business risks. In 2014, Safe Work Australia commissioned the Centre for Workplace Leadership at Melbourne University to provide a summary of this evidence. The report suggests the evidence supports the general business case for investment in work health and safety – that those investments provide a positive return through reduced costs associated...

Model OHS legislation
The Australian Government has identified occupational health and safety (OHS) as a priority area for reform. One of the key elements of the OHS reform agenda is harmonisation – moving towards one set of national OHS laws. The harmonisation of OHS legislation aims to reduce the incidence of workplace death, injury and disease right across Australia. Currently all states and territories are responsible for making and enforcing their own OHS laws. Although these draw on a similar approach for regulating workplaces, there are some differences in the application and detail of the laws. Safe Work...
