Abstract

A literature review was conducted to determine significant factors for chiropractors progressing towards classification as an Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) consultant in Australia.

A number of priority areas for investigation were identified as significant for OHS consultants. These included: work site assessment, risk control and prevention, spinal care awareness and injury prevention, OHS committee, training procedures and induction manuals, ergonomic improvements, stress management, first aid, forklift safety, accident records, job rotation and supervisor training.

Several issues are important considerations where chiropractor's knowledge may be deficient. Lack of awareness of the issues may leave the chiropractor liable for prosecution due to misrepresentation as an OHS consultant.
