NSW Healthy Workers Initiative: Industry Profiles (Construction, Transport & Storage, Agriculture Forestry and Fishing) 2013

Client:  NSW Ministry of Health

WRC is preparing industry profiles to assist the NSW Ministry of Health in delivering the Healthy Workers Initiative in the Construction, Transport and Storage, and Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing industries. The profiles focused on identifying existing health issues and behaviours, and identifying barriers and enablers for delivery of the Healthy Workers Initiative, including suggestions for the design of communications strategies and materials.

Each profile will be developed primarily using insights from interviews with key informants and a review of policies and programs. Analysis will also conducted for each industry using Azjen and Fishbein's Theory of Planned Behaviour to identify barriers and provide suggestions to influence behaviours at the industry, employer and worker level.
