IWH: Breakthrough change – External influences motivate improved OHS

A new study by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) suggests that, when workplaces make large improvements in OHS that the change was typically initiated by one or more external influences, such as a government OHS inspection, market pressure from industry clients or a serious injury happening in a similar business.
