Kevin discusses this highly topical research paper that examines whether things could, and should, change in the workplace because of the current situation, and the potential implications for OHS.

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.
