Abstract

Further results (some of which were presented in Part 1) from a survey of 125 Queensland workers undergoing health and safety representative training are reported. Information is presented on workers' beliefs about accident causation. Various groups (those holding positions as health and safety representatives; shop stewards; blue collar and white collar workers) are compared on a range of issues. Shop stewards were significantly more active on health and safety matters, suggesting they are presently taking on much of the health and safety representative role. Overall, the results support the view that Queensland trails other States in the implementation of worker participation in health and safety.
