WAVE: The Breakaway Techniques

Presentation by: Ollie Matthews, National OHS Auditor, Healthscope

Presentation package now available (members only)

Handling violence or aggression in the workplace was the subject of an absorbing and useful presentation by our President, Alan 'Ollie' Matthews at Central Safety Group's meeting on April 9, 2013.
Ollie  shared details of a system for dealing with incidents of violence and aggression or occupational assault, which he developed for his employer Healthscope, one of Australia's largest private hospital and clinic operators.
The system he uses is the WAVE system - Workplace Aggression and Violence Education - which is a tool for identifying, de-escalating and keeping employees safe in aggressive or violent situations.

The presenter:

Alan (Ollie) Matthews’ career in OHS stretches back as far as the early days of Central Safety Group itself. In 1974 he became technical advisor for Pratt Safety Systems, where he worked with the authorities to develop HAZCHEM signage for vehicles and buildings, and also specialised in the safe storing and dispensing of chemicals and flammable liquids. In 1986 Ollie commenced as the first OHS Manager with the now John Fawkner Private Hospital in Coburg. By 1991 he was OHS Manager for 5 hospitals, eventually becoming the National OHS Auditor for Healthscope hospitals across Australia. In 2003 he was elected President of Central Safety Group, a position he still holds. Recently he was awarded Life Membership of CSG.
