Presentation package now available (members only)

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.

The presenter:
