Occupational health and safety

Creating a healthy and safe environment for workers is becoming increasingly complex as work becomes a more dynamic and ever changing phenomena.

OHS researchers within the school have a broad range of skills and expertise and research across a diverse range of issues:

  • exploring better means of identifying and managing heat exposure;
  • investigating the impact of hand-held mobile technology on musculoskeletal disorders
  • studying the role of OHS professionals as influencers in organisational decision making

Research is already improving the lives of workers, and working to reduce the impact of poor workplace health and safety on the Australian and International community.
