What is this webinar about?

What are the psychological effects of workplace injury? And how can an understanding of this help employers support workers’ return to work?

Research findings on this will be discussed in a Zoom presentation by Dr. Xi Wen (Carys) Chan of Griffith University, one of the authors of a recent report commissioned by Safe Work Australia. The aim was to advance knowledge and generate recommendations for Safe Work Australia’s National Return to Work Strategy 2020-2030.

Carys and her team of fellow researchers did a detailed investigation of both published scientific literature and current organisational practices regarding employees’ psychological responses to injuries and illnesses resulting in an absence from work. The paper on their findings was published last year. Her presentation will highlight the main findings on the types and prevalence of psychological reactions by workers who have sustained an injury or illness. She will also discuss what can increase the risk of these reactions, and practical processes employers can put in place to support workers in this situation.
