In addition to publishing detailed reports, the Commission also influences current policy initiatives and proposals across government as they arise. The Commission has intervened on issues as diverse as data protection and exposure to hand-arm vibration; asylum seekers and the environment; care for the elderly and the work-life balance; and head on beer and kneeling buses.
