The Role of Accounting in Work Health and Safety Governance
Currently there is a lack of standardised and accepted indicators to measure the work health and safety performance of organisations and businesses at the organisational level. Work health and safety information can and is being reported on a voluntary basis, however reporting is often selective and inconsistent. This hinders comparisons of work health and safety performance and due diligence reporting over time and across organisations. These papers are a series of research papers that will inform a broader three staged policy development project taking place over the next three years. The aim...

Workplace health and safety, business productivity and sustainability
Leadership and culture is one of the key Action Areas of the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022. There is strong evidence that performance is improved when organisations address work health and safety risks along with other important business risks. In 2014, Safe Work Australia commissioned the Centre for Workplace Leadership at Melbourne University to provide a summary of this evidence. The report suggests the evidence supports the general business case for investment in work health and safety – that those investments provide a positive return through reduced costs associated...

New Zealand mining disaster: Sweeping away of old laws left industry "in limbo"
New laws to improve worker participation in health and safety matters and toughen up directors' duties should be given early attention, according to an official report into the Pike River mining tragedy in New Zealand two years ago. The Pike River coal mine, which lies on the west coast of the South Island, exploded on 19 November 2010, due to the ignition of a large volume of methane gas. Twenty-nine men underground died immediately, or soon afterwards, either from the blast or from the toxic atmosphere. Over the next nine days the mine exploded three more times before it was sealed. The Royal...

Agriculture Sector Action Plan to 2013
Workplace Health and Safety Strategy for New Zealand to 2015 Making a real and sustained reduction in the amount of injury, disease and death in a particular industry is no mean feat – especially when you're talking about one as diverse and complex as agriculture.

The agriculture sector has one of the highest levels of workplace injury, disease and fatalities...

The demographic challenges facing OHS management
The best OHS advice, or rather innovative thinking, is frequently coming from those experts from outside the traditional OHS background. A case in point could be a presentation made by prominent Australian demographer, Bernard Salt, at one of the many Safe Work Australia Week events in South Australia. Salt provided enough information about population changes that OHS professionals and regulators became uneasy about many of the challenges that they will face in the next few decades.
