Central Safety Group networking get-together
CSG had a relaxed finish to the end of the year with an informal zoom event on December 14th.
The results of our recent survey on topics for 2022 seminars were discussed, with the top five listed below. Interestingly, the least popular topic was COVID. I wonder why?
- Latest OHS research
- Regulatory & legal issues
- Leadership & culture
- Mental health & wellbeing
- Design, ergonomics & manual handling
There is a clear preference for continuing recorded zoom sessions, though there is still a demand for face-to-face networking opportunities. The committee has already been considering how to offer hybrid events to meet these needs.
The zoom attendees were invited to share their workplace experiences over the past year. Cameron spoke about his work with a national recruitment business that includes electrical drafting. As an essential service, business has continued as usual under COVID, except for the challenges of site visits and new rules, such as mask wearing and vaccinations.
As Bryce is based in Albury/Wodonga working for a global company, he has spent most days dealing with multi-jurisdiction COVID issues rather than core business.
David shared his experiences in a national role with Coles, with 120,000 team members across 850 stores. Like many businesses, Coles has had to develop new COVID-safe ways of working.
This forum was a great opportunity to hear from our members and share some personal experiences.
We hope you all enjoy a wonderful safe Xmas and will join us in our 60th Anniversary year.
