Biography

Rebecca Loudoun is an Associate Professor and Director of Engagement in the Department of Employment Relations and Human Resources, Griffith Business School. Her research is in the broad field of work health and safety where she considers how organisational policies and practices intersect with the quality of employees’ working experiences and non-work lives. With this research agenda becoming more sharply focussed on leadership and management in the last few years, much of her recent work considers debates on the critical role of key workplace actors, and particularly line managers, on health and safety outcomes.

Rebecca has more than two decades experience researching and teaching in the area of work health and safety, including as lead researcher on more than 10 funded research projects in the last 10 years. Recently she led a large Government-funded research project investigating the prevention of lifestyle diseases in the construction industry.  She is currently the Project Lead, working on an intervention tool with an industry employer to assist in the recruitment and development of workers who embody the organisations' health and safety practices and principles.
