How do you move safety induction online yet keep it alive? Troy Winn spoke 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 was 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 spoke about a project to move this training online, where his role was to produce videos. He outlined the thinking and planning behind it, as well as the particular role of videos in making the induction more engaging and effective.  

His presentation included some of his safety induction videos, along with discussion about the various ideas, steps and lessons that went into making them.

The presenter:

Troy Winn has been WHS Manager for the Simonds Group since 2022. Prior to that he held national safety management roles in a number of construction companies. He spent several years as State OHS Advisor for the Housing Industry Association. Troy has also worked in the mental health, allied health, child care and aged care sectors. His experience includes roles in safety, wellbeing, workers compensation and risk management with organisations including Mind Australia, Blue Cross Aged Care and EACH healthcare services. Troy completed his Masters in Ergonomics, Safety and Health at La Trobe University in October 2023.

Some of the hot topics in OHS at the moment are not directly about work health and safety. Kevin Jones discussed this at a CSG lunchtime presentation on Tuesday 12 March 2024. He covered what’s new, what’s getting attention, and some of the latest and re-emerging challenges in OHS.

His talk included comments, and recommendations of books on issues including work psychology; the management of time; troublemakers; corporate values and leadership.

The presentation was followed by a question and discussion session.

The presenter:

Kevin Jones is a consultant and advisor in a wide range of OHS projects. He is internationally recognised for his commentary and analysis on safety-related matters in his popular award-winning SafetyAtWorkBlog (safetyatworkblog.com). Kevin is a Life Member of Central Safety Group.
