CSG April 2016 Presenter: Sylvia Hudson, Manager, People Safety, Health & Wellbeing at V/Line

A more direct approach to safety (V/line and its employees)

Presentation by: Sylvia Hudson, Manager, People Safety, Health & Wellbeing, V/Line

Presentation package now available (members only)

Having a safety strategy in place is not enough – what can you do to ensure employees are aligned with it?
Sylvia Hudson outlined a different and more direct approach being taken by V/Line, Australia’s largest regional public transport operator.
She discussed her organisation’s new “Destination Zero” safety program and the reasons why it was needed. It is a program that has to serve a workforce ranging from highly skilled technical personnel at head office to drivers and signal operators and to track work gangs in remote locations across the State. Sylvia described how V/Line is working to strengthen its employees’ connection to safety, responding to issues revealed by workplace surveys. This includes using simpler language, changing the subject emphasis and balancing the human element with the focus on compliance.

The presenter:

Before joining V/Line in late 2014, Sylvia was responsible for safety at Citywide, which delivers physical services to councils, mainly along the Eastern seaboard. Prior to that she had a national safety role with Visy and has worked in a number of manufacturing organisations, such as Trico and GM Holden. Sylvia has spent time working in the warehousing, transport and distribution sector and has experience in developing a Safety Management System for a greenfield operation. Sylvia’s passion for safety first developed while working as a shoemaker in a manufacturing plant, complemented through time spent as an HSR. This led to her studying for a safety qualification and becoming a full-time safety professional in the 1990s.

On 11 June Woody will share with CSG his special insights and experience on how to get the safety message across from the workshop floor to the Board room.
This knowledge comes from visiting countless work sites, companies, and organisations, talking to them about the real impact of workplace injury.
After his presentation, Woody will welcome questions and discussion from the audience.
