As an OHS practitioner, how important is it to have an ethical approach in your role? And what is involved? This was the topic of Keith Govias' presentation to Central Safety Group on Tuesday, 10 May.

Keith is the first OHS professional to become a Vincent Fairfax Fellow in Ethical Leadership, and is also a peer-reviewer of the Ethics and Professional Practice chapter for the Body of Knowledge produced by the Australian Institute of Health and Safety.

Keith discussed the ethical challenges in our profession and how an ethical framework can be applied to OHS decision making, performance measurement, injury management and other areas, and gave examples from his own professional experience.

The ethics section in the Body of Knowledge was also discussed (https://www.ohsbok.org.au/chapter-38-3-ethics-and-professional-practice/#1548328004981-b89ce6eb-6a9a)

Following the presentation, Keith welcomed questions and discussion.

A visual approach to inductions
How do you move safety induction online yet keep it alive? Troy Winn will talk about how he met that challenge in a presentation on Tuesday, 9 April.
Troy, who is WHS Manager for the Simonds Group, recently completed a Masters in Ergonomics, Safety and Health at La Trobe University in Melbourne. His presentation is based on research he did in the Advanced Practice Stream as part of his postgraduate degree.
Working in the construction industry, Troy and his safety team were often investing several hours a week delivering safety inductions to site supervisors before they commenced a job. A high turnover of people and projects on sites made this a demanding commitment.
Troy will talk about a project to move this training online, where his role was to produce videos. He will outline the thinking and planning behind it, as well as the particular role of videos in making the induction more engaging and effective.
His presentation will include some of his safety induction videos, along with discussion about the various ideas, steps and lessons that went into making them.
