WORK-RELATED DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH
Credit points: 15
In this subject, work-related determinants of occupational health are reviewed within a broad, macro-ergonomics systems framework. Students will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of some of the mechanisms and pathways via which people's jobs and working environments can affect their physical and psychological health, safety and wellbeing, both positively and negatively. Within this framework, the aetiology of a range of the most commonly occurring occupational injuries and diseases will be reviewed.
