Risk Management, Control and Surveillance thrust addresses evidence-based interpretation of outputs for consistent risk assessment, risk management and communications of health, environment and climate issues. It looks into the design and implementation of surveillance of projects to ensure cost-beneficial, effective and fit-for-purpose evidence for policy-making and education. Several research projects will be integrated with modeling and simulation studies.
A Baseline, Cross-Sectional and Intervention Study Investigating Individual, Cultural and Organisational Factors Influencing Ownership of Workplace Health and Safety Leading to a Mindset Change and Actions
This is the collaboration between CHESS and WSH Institute. Unsafe workplace conditions may affect employees’ performance, product quality, and profits of the organisation. Providing workplace safety and health (WSH) prevention, efficient WSH managerial systems and policies will enhance employees’ work performance as well as strengthen the WSH culture and ownership within the organisation. There are studies carried out on WSH focusing on the influences of communication in WSH on the individual, cultural and organisational factors. However, limited research has been done to provide the systematic and comprehensive examination on the effects of communication in WSH on the individual, cultural and organisational factors in driving WSH ownership leading to a mindset change and actions. This project aims to use communication to drive WSH mindset change and actions towards greater industry ownership of WSH, through the research study, it will identify the key success factors and propose communication-related and information-related recommendations and interventions to engender industry ownership for WSH.
