Abstract:
Aims to provide an initial overview of work-related injury and illness in Australian transport sector workers over a twelve year time frame, at a population level. The Australian transport and logistics industry is a diverse industry encompassing drivers, logistics, storage and warehousing workers, managers and executives. Transport workers are subject to a unique set of health risks in their working environment, including sedentary jobs, long working hours and shift work, isolation, fatigue and sleep deprivation among others.
This report, the first in a series from the Driving Health Study, presents findings from analysis of national workers’ compensation claims data, in order to:
1. Describe the nature, extent and impact of work-related injury and disease in Australian transport and logistics workers.
2. Determine if the incidence and impact of work-related injury and disease in these workers is changing over time.
3. Compare work-related injury and disease in transport workers to other workers in Australia.
