The health of employees is significantly influenced by the characteristics of the workplace. Employees experience a range of physical and mental health conditions as a result of the competing demands of the workplace. Musculoskeletal injuries are common, together with obesity and mental health concerns.
We have worked extensively with male dominated industries to develop appropriate strategies to deal with these issues in the workplace. We have capacity to complete research into a range of physical and mental health aspects of the Defence workforce including prevalence and intervention studies.
We are well placed to conduct research about task rotation and have worked extensively with other male dominated industries to develop appropriate strategies to implement this within the workforce as one strategy to reduce musculoskeletal injuries.
We are well positioned to complete research into reducing workplace obesity in employees using a newly developed organisational based framework.
