CSG Meeting: October 2018
Dr Ross Donohoe, Senior Lecturer, Monash University

A fresh look at safety inspections

Central Safety Group members present at the meeting on 9 October were amongst the first to hear about research conducted by Dr Ross Donohue of Monash University.  

Ross shared some useful recommendations on improving safety inspections, including making them more standardised and measurable. To that end he has developed a 7-item generic checklist which could be applied widely.

The work Ross has done on this so far relates to inspecting for physical risk, and he is now planning research and recommendations on assessing psychosocial risk.

While we are unable to provide the presentation from this meeting, we do have a report on the presentation.

If you want to make sure you don't miss out on any of our great speakers, put the second Tuesday of the month in your calendar and come along to our meetings.

Date & Time: Tuesday 9 October 2018 at 12:00pm Venue: Level 1, 333 Queen Street Melbourne (AMS Consulting Group)

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.
