Abstract:

Australia has an aging population and there is a wider range of employees of different ages in the workforce. Previous research has demonstrated significant intergenerational differences in WHS risks and outcomes for workgroups from different generations. For example, while young workers (<25y) are at an increased risk of experiencing an injury in the workplace, older workers are more likely to suffer a serious or fatal injury. It is largely unknown to what extent inter-generational differences may account for these differences in injury risk, and how intergenerational
differences influence other work health and safety (WHS) outcomes.
Understanding this will be crucial to ensure safe systems of work for employees of all generations as the workforce evolves. The aim of the Easy as X, Y, Z study was to investigate to what extent intergenerational differences influence attitudes towards WHS, and WHS practice.
