A survey conducted by Safe Work Australia for the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 highlighted a relaxed attitude towards risk taking and rule breaking by Australian workers. The survey included responses from 1,052 employers, 520 sole traders, 1311 workers and 669 Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs).
