Presentation package now available (members only)

On 12 September Professor David Caple AM shared some of the key issues and new findings from two international conferences he had just attended.

The question of what systems performance is and how it can be achieved was the subject of a number of sessions at the July conference of Organizational Design and Management in Bordeaux, France.

David outlined insights from this conference on how ergonomics can adapt to improve wellbeing and systems performance across multiple industries. The conference’s aim was to provide ‘insights, revelations and recommendations’ on the role of ergonomics.

Australia’s approach to prevention of manual handling injuries was under the spotlight at the Human Factors and Ergonomics Malaysia conference in August. It included a comparative review of Australian and Malaysian approaches.

David Caple gave a presentation there on the subject of 'Sustainable ergonomics interventions to MSD risks in industries'. He outlined some successful programs in different industries in Australia and shared those with us as well.

Site visit to Melbourne & Olympic Parks
Enjoy the chance to see inside the safety systems of some of Melbourne’s biggest event and sporting venues with Scott McMillan, Director of Safety at Melbourne & Olympic Parks on 9 July.
Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) is home to seven national, elite sporting teams and welcomes millions of visitors annually. The precinct is acclaimed for hosting the Australian Open, a range of sporting codes, as well as top international acts and musicians.
On the site visit, Scott will show the safety side of what goes into putting on some of its main sporting events. This includes discussing the challenge of providing safe delivery, in a short time frame and on a very large scale.

About the Venue:

The original Olympic Park sporting arena, established in 1933, was demolished in 1946 for redevelopment to prepare the precinct to host field hockey and cycling events during the 1956 Olympic Games. By 1988, another significant redevelopment was underway to establish a purpose-built, multi-venue National Tennis Centre to host the Australian Open. In 2006 the precinct hosted various events for the Commonwealth Games.
Today the precinct is home to six of Melbourne’s premier venues: Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena, John Cain Arena, AAMI Park, CENTREPIECE and Kia Arena. A $972 million-dollar Melbourne Park Redevelopment has recently been completed by the Victorian Government.
