When Workplace Changes Outpace OHS Standards

Presentation by: Professor David Caple AM, OHS Consultant and Adjunct Professor, Centre for Ergonomics & Human Factors, La Trobe University, David Caple & Associates

Presentation package now available (members only)

More and more jobs today require working on mobile devices including laptops, Surface Pros and tablets. 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?
Professor David Caple discussed this issue in a lunchtime presentation to Central Safety Group on 10 September, 2019. David explained that today we have ‘agile work’ in offices while Australian Standards and equipment have been designed for static workplaces. The term ‘agile’ describes the fact that a lot of computer work now is not done at conventional office workstations. This means existing Australian Standards for task chairs and workstations are potentially based on assumptions that, in many instances, are no longer appropriate. David looked at the current gaps and the need for change and offered some recommendations.

The presenter:

Professor David Caple AM has been a leading figure in occupational health and safety in Australia for many years. He has advised a wide range of businesses, industry groups and public sector organisations, and worked with Australian and overseas governments on work health and safety strategy. He is an OHS consultant and Adjunct Professor, Centre for Ergonomics & Human Factors, La Trobe University.

OHS and Social Sustainability
As the concept of social sustainability becomes more important, businesses and organisations are treating people more as an asset to be valued and looked after.
How can OHS practitioners support their businesses in building and maintaining social sustainability? Phil Lovelock has some answers when he presents a model for doing this in a CSG lunchtime Zoom talk on 9th August.
He will outline a 5-point action plan with elements that reflect the growth and maturity of OHS as a profession. It will cover people, workplace environment, systems, the organisation and external stakeholders.
It is a new, broader approach to the OHS role that will be useful for anyone facing this challenge.
