Dr. Campbell’s research interests include occupational injury surveillance in Jamaica with emphasis on fatal injuries through innovative and non-traditional approaches to national occupational injury surveillance. Whereas mandatory national occupational injury surveillance systems exist in Jamaica, these are characterised by severe under and non-reporting in the face of limited enforcement. Consequently, except for the bauxite/alumina sector, no reliable occupational injury data exists for Jamaica. These research efforts are geared toward the accurate quantification of fatal occupational injuries in Jamaica, provide accurate estimates of the incidence of non-fatal occupational injuries and, inter alia describe the epidemiology of occupational injuries in Jamaica. The ultimate goal is the determination of the cost of occupational injuries to enterprises and the national economy thus setting the basis for influencing and informing policies for improved worker protection at the enterprise and national levels.
Research to date has shown that conservative annual estimates of occupational injuries are over ?? times higher than annual averages reported by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security. Also work-related violent homicides and work-road accidents are generally not reported as occupational injuries in Jamaica.
Another area of interest of Dr. Campbell is indoor air quality (IAQ), with work being currently initiated in this area.
