Presentation package now available (members only)

For those who missed it, or others who would like to re-live this special occasion, we have produced a memorable package. There were a few technical challenges on the day, including our original plan for filming the speakers. However, our wonderful secretary Heather Turner saved the day by filming it with her phone and, while it will not be nominated for an Academy Award, it certainly captures the atmosphere well.

There were so many highlights of the day, not least of which was having David Caple AM as MC for the event. He features at the beginning of the video, along with President Nan Austin.

We were honoured to have Dr Narelle Beer from WorkSafe Victoria attend and give the keynote address. She had some very interesting things to say about future developments in OHS in Victoria. The transcript of her speech is available as part of this package. We also welcomed Narelle's commitment on behalf of WorkSafe Victoria to maintaining ties with our group.

Barry Naismith was our second speaker and gave a fascinating overview of the history of OHS in Victoria; his presentation slides are also included. Finally, our longest-serving president, Ollie Matthews, was honoured for his 22 years of service to the group (1998-2022).

A photo gallery of the event completes our package. (Members, go to Event video description and click on the photo-video icon, 1st icon shown, to view the Photo gallery.)

The presenter:

Narelle Beer commenced her role with WorkSafe Victoria in November 2021. It has enabled her to focus on enhancing workplace safety and embedding harm reduction processes, opportunities and strategies through engagement, education, compliance and enforcement. Prior to that, Narelle spent more than 35 years serving the community: 5 years as Assistant Commissioner, Regional and Remote Operations, with the Northern Territory Police, preceded by 30 years as a member of Victoria Police. Narelle has worked in criminal, corruption and collision investigations, education and in corporate/policy departments. She has managed and led a number of taskforces into corruption within Victoria Police. Narelle has undertaken extensive postgraduate study and been awarded a number of scholarships, which have enabled her to travel widely. This includes a Churchill Fellowship in 2013 to undertake specialist training in integrity testing and corruption investigations in the UK and USA. In 2008, Narelle was awarded the Vincent Fairfax Fellowship for Ethical Leadership.

The presenter:

Barry Naismith spent more than 14 years with the Victorian WorkCover Authority before working independently as an OHS consultant. This currently includes working with Uniting Victoria on a program to reduce the impact of work harms on the community. Barry has qualifications in science from Melbourne University and media studies from RMIT as well as practical qualifications in OHS/HSR. He has worked previously as a journalist and editor.
