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.
Evaluating Workplace Health Promotion
By analysing the data collected through WorkHealth, a program of voluntary workplace health checks, we've been able to gain great insight into the health of Victoria's working population.
Promoting Psychosocial Health
"Psychosocial health" is a generic term given to the connection between mental and physical wellbeing - and researchers have been trying to identify the most effective way to promote this connection in Victorian workplaces.
Mass Media Campaigns
This research team wanted to find out whether mass media health and safety campaigns were actually effective in changing behaviour - and the results were not as clear as you might expect.
Integrated Approaches to Worker Health, Wellbeing and Safety
The health, wellbeing and safety of workers is influenced by a lot of factors, so why not reflect this in a more multifaceted approach to health promotion? We looked at workplaces that have tried this out in the past, to see if it worked.
