The Changing Role of the OHS Professional

Presentation by: Pam Pryor AO, Manager OHS BoK Development, Australian Institute of Health and Safety

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

OHS is now suffering from 'disciplinary ambiguity' according to a recent international study. Pam Pryor, Manager OHS Body of Knowledge Development for the Australian Institute of Health and Safety, discussed this as well as other changes affecting the OHS profession at a zoom lunchtime presentation for Central Safety Group on 8 March.

These changes include the COVID-19 pandemic opening new ground on workplace safety, the growing discussions around psychological health and safety, and the fact that many OHS professionals now include ‘wellness’ as part of their role. Pam discussed how all of these highlight the lack of clarity around the role of the generalist OHS Professional. She also illustrated this with some interactive online polling of the participants.

Pam offered insights and perspectives on the current status of the generalist OHS professional in Australia, why it is now seen to be in some respects an ‘emerging profession’, and where it is headed.

The presenter:

Pam Pryor is an internationally recognised specialist in OHS capability and related aspects of OHS professionality. She is currently responsible for the development and ongoing maintenance of the Australian OHS Body of Knowledge (BoK). Bok is the collective works developed by a range of specialists that informs OHS education, certification and further development of OHS professionals. (See www.ohsbok.org.au) Her work with the International Network of Safety and Health Professionals developing the OHS Professional Capability Framework earned Pam the 2017-18 President’s Award from the American Society of Safety Professionals. In 2018 she was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia for her contribution to OHS Professionals, through her leadership and advisory roles, particularly in developing standards for education frameworks.
