Professor Alex Collie is CEO of the Institute For Safety Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR).
ISCRR is a research and innovation collaboration between Monash University, WorkSafe Victoria and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).
Alex and I discuss:
- The objectives of ISCRR
- Practical examples of how ISCRR research has shaped policy
- The personality attributes of a supervisor that can influence on-the-job safety
- ISCRR’s process for prioritizing research areas
- How to capture unreported data
- Where do people go when they exit a compensation scheme?
- The three types of research used to come up with findings
- Lagging Indicators vs Leading Indicators
- The negative health effects of compensation systems
- How you can get involved with ISCRR
I give you my 3 key take-aways from talking with Alex:
- The challenge of impartiality
- Leading Indicators
- The system designed to help people get better is actually making them worse
