You may be surprised by how many factors affect the health and safety of your workplace. At ISCRR, we study all of these factors, to figure out how they can be measured and managed.
Preventing Workplace Injury and Illness
Workplace injuries and illnesses can place a significant burden on individuals, workplaces and our community. ISCRR research aims to reduce work-related injury and illness in Victoria, and to help workplaces and compensation systems manage incidents effectively.
Promoting Healthy Working Environments
Effective health and safety promotion involves a lot more than a poster in the tearoom. ISCRR researchers understand this, and are dedicated to learning more about how promotion can be effectively used to counter workplace hazards.
Assessing and Measuring Workplace Safety
The most effective way to create a safe workplace is to identify and address potential hazards before anything has a chance to go wrong in the first place. ISCRR researchers are developing tools, systems, processes and protocols that do just that.
Preventing Musculoskeletal Injury
Musculoskeletal injuries are the most common of workplace compensation claims. ISCRR researchers have picked up this issue and are currently broadening conversation on this topic, by looking at new ways to prevent, report, and investigate musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace.
Maintaining Mental Health and Wellbeing
Occupational health and safety policy has traditionally focused on injuries that we can see, overlooking critical mental health issues. This research seeks to change that, by developing new frameworks for identifying and addressing mental health hazards at work.
