We research and collect data on work-related diseases in Australia. We:

  • analyse how often it happens, and
  • estimate how it impacts Australian workers, employers and the community.

This information helps policy makers and researchers find ways to prevent future disease and to raise awareness about the number of workers who have experienced ill health because of the work they do.
