Occupational Health and Safety: Generating regulatory perceptions to encourage compliance
MetadataShow full item record
The research begins by identifying that there is an unacceptably high level of injury and disease in Australian workplaces. A premature death or injury, however well compensated, is not only an economic loss to society; more importantly, it is a major personal tragedy for the deceased’s family, friends and work colleagues. These factors culminate into a powerful moral and economic business case for safer workplaces and work practices. The research offers valuable stakeholder practical and theoretical considerations that have the potential to benefit the process of on-going Occupational Safety and Health regulatory and compliance improvement.
