The future of OHS
Professor David Caple
What will OHS look like in the future? What jobs are likely to be available and skill sets required?
Professor David Caple, a close participant and observer in the safety industry for over 40 years will examine these questions in a lunchtime talk to the Central Safety Group on 12 September.
David will talk about how the field of workplace safety has evolved, looking at the most important trends and changes over the years.
He will then discuss what he sees as the latest significant developments in the area, and where he sees things heading in the future.
This will include what OHS practitioners will be expected to know and do, and the skills, background and experience they will need in the years ahead.
