Psychosocial safety climate and better productivity in Australian workplaces: costs, productivity, presenteeism, absenteeism

23 Nov 2016
Description

Previous research has indicated that addressing psychosocial hazards by improving Psychosocial Safety Climate (PSC) and also improving three psychological health outcomes: depression, psychological distress, and engagement may be effective in reducing sickness absence and presenteeism.

Addressing psychosocial hazards that contribute to human capital costs is an innovative strategy that could improve productivity while also making substantial improvements to the well-being of workers.

Data from the 2014-15 Australian Workplace Barometer (AWB) project was used in this report. Participants were randomly selected across all states and territories and the data were weighted to ensure the sample was representative of the working population in respective states and territories.
