||Inside stress claims - The Victorian experience
||Sep. 1996, Vol.67, No.8, p.26-31.
||Workers' compensation claims for stress-related illness in Victoria, Australia have increased in recent years. Stress claims accounted for 4.9% of total claims in 1995-96, and were, on average, more costly than most other claims. Most stress claims in Victoria occur in the community services sector, particularly in education, hospitals, and the police and prison services. The nature and causes of occupational stress are discussed, current legislation is outlined, and suggestions for stress management initiatives are put forward.
