Mark Lidegaard has joined the Centre for Occupational Health and Safety as a PhD Scholar.
Mark holds a BSc in Sport Sciences and a MSc in Human Physiology from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Before coming to New Zealand Mark has worked as a research assistant at the Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at Bispebjerg University Hospital, Copenhagen and at the National Research Centre for the Working Environment, Copenhagen.
In his PhD, Mark will be investigating the uptake, use and impact of the ACC ‘Moving and Handling People Guidelines 2012’ (MHPG) using a realist analysis approach. The study will use a mixed methods approach and have four phases that each are specifically designed to evaluate 1) how the MHPG was intended to work; 2) the uptake and use of the MHPG; 3) injury and incident statistics before and after the introduction of the MHPG; 4) the impact of the MHPG and factors that may hinder or facilitate its’ use. The PhD is jointly funded by Massey University Research Fund and the New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation.
Accompanying Mark to New Zealand is his wife and two young daughters. The whole family are already enjoying their New Zealand experience and late summer hiking in the mountains of the lower Northern Island.
