Safety Shake-up Across The Tasman

Date & Time: Tuesday 12 November at 12:00pm

Venue: DXC Technology, Level 19 (Board Room 1), 360 Collins Street, Melbourne
(Between Queen & Elizabeth Street).

Safety Shake-up Across The Tasman

Nan Austin.

The death of 28 miners in an underground explosion at New Zealand’s Pike River Coal Mine nine years ago led to anger, accusations and the call for a major inquiry into the country’s safety laws. The result was a major re-engineering of New Zealand’s safety systems with the introduction of the new Health and Safety Work Act in 2016.
Nan Austin will give a first-hand account of the safety reforms in New Zealand, and how the new system is working out, at Central Safety Group's lunchtime meeting on 12 November... Read More

Safety clutter - and what to do about it

Dr David Provan, Managing Director, Safety 21 Pty Ltd, and Lecturer & Researcher, Griffith University, Queensland.

Does OHS in your workplace feel weighed down by paperwork, rules and procedures? Dr David Provan says this can be due to ‘safety clutter’, described in a study he co-authored as "the accumulation of safety procedures, documents, roles and activities that are performed in the name of safety, but do not contribute to the safety of operational work." Worse, this can create negative beliefs and attitudes to safety, according to the research. David will talk about how to identify ‘safety clutter’, what to do about it and how to remove it in a lunchtime presentation to Central Safety Group on Thursday, 10 October... Read More

Date & Time: Tuesday 10 September at 12:00pm

When Workplace Changes Outpace OHS Standards

Professor David Caple, OHS Consultant and Adjunct Professor, Centre for Ergonimics & Human Factors, LaTrobe University.

More and more jobs today require working on mobile devices including laptops, Surface Pros and tablets. Some workplaces ‘dock’ these with monitors and keyboards and others are being used as the primary input device. When it comes to assessing ergonomic risks linked to this, compliance is measured by long-established OHS Codes and Australian Standards.
But how relevant and effective are the current Standards for white collar workplaces where agile work is changing the way we work? Professor David Caple will discuss this issue in a lunchtime presentation to Central Safety Group on 10 September... Read More

Managing Inappropriate Customer Behaviour

Kristen Richardson, Wellbeing and Safety Business Partner Team Leader, ANZ.

Staff safety and difficult customer interactions
Many businesses have seen an upsurge in staff impacted by difficult customer interactions that may place them at risk of a physical or psychosocial illness.

This has particularly been the case in the banking industry and is varied across customer contact, whether it is face-to-face or telephone interactions.

ANZ Bank has a strategy in place to keep their staff safe from this risk and this will be presented by Kristen Richardson, Wellbeing and Safety Business Partner Team Leader at ANZ, at a lunchtime presentation on 9 April.

The strategy looks at all aspects of staff safety – physical, psychosocial and most importantly the leadership culture shift required to enable this strategy to be successful. This strategy has been developed using external consultancy expertise and research across other industries. Read more...

An Explosive Hazard Hidden in Plain Sight

Richard Greenwood, RG Chemical Safety.

Combustible dust can be a hidden chemical hazard in workshops, factories, storage facilities and many other places. Because it’s not classified as a hazardous substance or as dangerous goods, it is often ignored in workplace procedures and risk control. The significance of this will be discussed by chemical hazards expert Richard Greenwood in a lunchtime presentation to Central Safety Group on 12 March.
The consequences of not recognising the presence of combustible dust were dramatically demonstrated recently when two workers doing routine maintenance were seriously injured in a workplace explosion in Victoria. The result was an Enforceable Undertaking for the company involved, including preparation of basic workplace training materials and a video for awareness of the hazard. Richard will talk about this case as part of its compliance with WorkSafe’s Enforceable Undertaking.
He will explain how fine combustible dusts are likely to form and potentially explode when disturbed in an enclosed space. He will also discuss how to detect and manage risks associated with this... Read More
