A fresh look at safety inspections
Dr Ross Donohue, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Business and Economics, Monash University.
There has been surprisingly little research done on how inspectors assess health and safety in workplaces. Although the inspectors’ task is grounded in rules and regulations, there are few standardised measures to assist them.
Dr Ross Donohue, our speaker on 9 October, has been doing ground breaking work on this.
As a result Ross has developed a 7-item generic OHS metric checklist as a standardised tool to assist inspectors and has conducted research to validate this measure in a study undertaken with WorkSafe Victoria.
Ross also sees the need for developing measures and training to assist OHS inspectors to assess psychosocial risk.
