Women in Mining – How do YOU feel?

Published: 04/03/2014

Renée Parsons-Smith BSc Hon (Psych) Assoc MAPS is a PhD Candidate at the University of Southern Queensland.

Renée is doing interesting research at the moment and needs us all to get involved by participating in her research as she hasn’t managed to get enough traction and responses yet. Her target = 100 female participants from the mining industry; tally so far = 20 responses.

In her own words: “Given that the potential for injury and mortality are significantly greater in some industries, this research involves the investigation of mood and safety behaviour in construction and mining environments. To be involved (5 minute commitment) go to the survey.  Please take a moment to visit our website  and please ‘LIKE’ in support of this important research on safety. Thank you very much ladies.”


More information about In the Mood, an online mood assessment based on the Brunel Mood SCale (BRUMS):
Professor Peter Terry and Renée Parsons-Smith from the University of Southern Queensland are investigating relationships between mood and safety behaviour in high-risk vocations. Participants will complete the Brunel Mood Scale and the Workplace Health and Safety Scale, which will take approximately 5 minutes.

Participation is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time. All information is confidential and will only be viewed by the researchers. The results of the study will be reported in a doctoral dissertation and may be published in a psychological journal. Only group data will be reported in these documents, meaning that your identity as a participant will remain confidential.

I invite you to make a difference by telling Renée how you feel.
