Work Trauma, Work Stress – causes, statistics and remedies

October 19, 2019

I presented a paper on work trauma at a conference in August 2019. While writing the paper I was struck by the lack of any correlation between statistics compiled by SafeWork Australia and reports from the Australian Bureau of Statistics about the prevalence of mental health issues in Australia. The workers compensation statistics also do not ignore knowledge the issue of comorbidity. Of course it is a difficult task but nevertheless a significant number of workers develop mental health issues unrelated to their employment. It seems impossible to capture this overlap. You may be interested to read the paper. It can be found here
