A study was commissioned by the agency in early 1996 to review workplace strain. The outcomes sought by the department following the implementation of the project recommendations, as outlined in the project briefwere to have: 1. a reduction ofpsychological and physical injuries of employees; 2. shorter duration of claims; 3. a reduction in the costs of claims; 4. a potential drop in sick leave; 5. a reduction in non compensable measures of occupational strain eg, absenteeism, poor performance, work flow interference, staffturnover, replacement and training costs; 6. managers and staffto be more aware of their role in preventing strain, contributing to strain, and managing strain; 7. managers to know ofand use a range of resources to assist them with occupational strain issues, eg, Occupational Health and Safety Advisor, and StaffCounsellor; and 8. staff to have a clear means and strategies to assist them with occupational strain and avenues to resolve conflict.
