OHS and social sustainability

Presentation by: Phil Lovelock, Senior Health, Safety and Wellbeing Consultant and Policy Advisor, VCCI

CSG event video now available (members only)
Presentation package now available (members only)

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 had some answers when he presented a model for doing this in a CSG lunchtime Zoom talk on 9th August.

He outlined a 5-point action plan with elements that reflect the growth and maturity of OHS as a profession. It covered people, workplace environment, systems, the organisation and external stakeholders. It is a new, broader approach to the OHS role that would be useful for anyone facing this challenge.

The presenter:

Phil Lovelock currently provides OHS and Workers’ Compensation training and consulting for Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) members and clients. He also represents VCCI on various WorkSafe Victoria Stakeholder Reference Groups and on other key industry forums and committees. Before joining VCCI in 2008, Phil spent many years as an occupational health and safety professional across a broad range of industries. He was Manager, Health, Safety & Environment for CSL Behring Ltd with responsibility for three Victorian and four Interstate sites. Prior to that, he spent a number of years providing training and consulting services to commercial and government organisations in the Northern Territory. Phil is a past President of the Australian Institute of Health & Safety (AIHS) and of the International Network of Safety and Health Professional Organisations (INSHPO). He holds both a Bachelors degree in Occupational Health & Environment and a Masters degree in Occupational Hygiene from the University of Western Sydney, along with several graduate diplomas.

Recruiting and retaining OHS staff in an inflated job market
Like many areas of the current job scene, employers looking for quality OHS professionals are finding themselves in an inflated job market, where there are more roles available than suitable applicants.
So what’s required to attract and retain OHS talent when good candidates are spoilt for choice? What do you need to be doing differently? Some useful advice will be offered by Helen O’Keefe, who runs a leading national health & safety executive search agency, at a presentation for CSG at noon on Tuesday 14 February.
Helen will talk about the current OHS job market, giving tips for both job seekers and employers looking to recruit. She will also discuss post-pandemic changes in OHS roles and where she sees new trends emerging.
There will be opportunities to join the discussion and ask questions.
The presentation will be followed by the 2022 AGM for Financial Members.
