Are we measuring safety performance the right way?

Presentation by: Conor O’Malley, Director, Global Safety Index - Safety Culture and Leadership Insights

Presentation package now available (members only)

Conor O’Malley, Director, Global Safety Index – Safety Culture and Leadership Insights, spoke at Central Safety Group’s meeting on 8 April, 2014, and discussed how measures and data collection usually fail to give insight into the safety climate, culture capability or competence of an organisation.
The Global Safety Index – GSI - has captured some useful findings with its Culture and Leadership surveys on what companies were doing well, as well as where the gaps lay. Conor discussed some survey findings in detail and the broad picture was that outputs were driven by culture, and that culture was driven by leadership.

The presenter:

Conor O'Malley has coached and led teams all his career as an Executive GM, with a strong supply chain background. His previous roles have been Chief Operating Officer for Glen Cameron Storage and Distribution, GM Logistics for Coles and the Group Executive at National Foods, responsible for Group Safety, Procurement, Shared Services, Logistics and Planning. Prior to coming to Australia in 2006 his career in the UK spanned 3rd Party Logistics and Wholesale supply chain management. He has a passion for strong safety leadership and, having had Executive accountability for safety in the Logistics and Manufacturing sectors, he has had success in leading organisations on a journey using leadership and culture as core drivers of that success. In 2013 he joined Global Safety Index as Sales and Distribution Director to support the co-founding Directors grow the business and is now on the Advisory Board.

Green ergonomics: Designing a sustainable workplace
How do you gain a green star rating for ergonomic design? You can learn what’s involved from Rosie O’Halloran, an award-winning Human Factors and Ergonomics practitioner, in her presentation to Central Safety Group on Tuesday 4 April.
She will present a methodology she developed for evaluating and certifying the interior of buildings with a green star rating credit for ergonomic design. Following her success with this at the University of Melbourne, Rosie won the 2022 University Safety Association’s Safety Professional of the Year award.
Rosie says incorporating ergonomics and human factors principles and practice into the interior design of buildings comes down to three fundamental principles, and stakeholder engagement is key to getting it right. The outcome is work spaces that promote physical well-being and perceived environmental comfort.
Rosie explains that, while the green star ergonomics credit rating for interior design requires certification by a Certified Professional Ergonomist, the method she will outline offers a verified, quality benchmark that could be used with confidence by all safety personnel.
The rating is awarded by the Green Building Council of Australia for interior design that meets selected ergonomic criteria. It is given in recognition of the substantial health benefits afforded by designing spaces and interfaces that provide optimum user comfort, safety and wellbeing and prevent or limit the risk of illness or injury.

About the Speaker:

Rosie O’Halloran is a Certified Professional Ergonomist with over 35 years’ experience in the field as a Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) practitioner. She is employed in a part-time capacity at the University of Melbourne as well as working privately as an HFE consultant.
Rosie has extensive experience in HFE across a broad range of industries. A focus of her work is designing workplace environments, systems and tasks to match the capabilities, needs and limitations of people, with the goal of maximising health, safety, wellbeing, productivity and satisfaction.
