Work and Hours amongst Mining and Energy Workers: Australian Coal and Energy Survey
MetadataShow full item record
Transformed work organisation in mining has led to major changes in townships and fears about sustainability. We analyse the impact of work arrangements in coal and their relationship to individual, family and community well–being. Using a two-stage, large, matched employee–partner survey supplemented by qualitative research, we address in an integrated framework the effects of changes in work time and work organisation on fatigue, occupational and road safety, work–life balance, marital conflict, psychological health, social capital and community life. This study addresses questions critical to social cohesion and the future of regional communities, and to labour retention and relations in Australia’s largest merchandise export industry.
