ABOUT THE EVENT The Public Sector faces a unique set of challenges and priorities within Workplace Health and Safety. In a changing landscape, organisations must be adaptable, accountable and resilient as they address the challenges of a diverse and evolving nature of Health, Safety and Wellbeing. Today we are exposed to managing a variety of issues spanning serious physical injuries to work related illness and psychosocial harm, to more preventative initiatives focusing on health and wellness promotion. The ability to advise and communicate effectively on a range of health and safety issues, coupled with the ability to establish and influence the desired organisational culture, are essential skills required of all health and safety professionals. Psychosocial harm and mental health issues in the workplace and its negative impact on both the individual and the organisation are areas of emerging interest and concern in organisations. The term Health and Safety positions the word “health” before the word “safety”. Out of all the budgets in Australia, about 96% is spent on safety and only about 4% is spent on health. Organisations who are bringing these areas into balance are seeing improved outcomes overall. Having a more holistic approach to health, safety and wellness that integrates these elements is a priority worth pursuing. This unique conference will showcase best practice examples from leading Public Sector organisations and experts, highlighting their journey towards a successful safety culture with demonstrable tangible results at the individual and organisational level. Delegates will have the unique opportunity to network, exchange ideas and share practical strategies. View the online agenda here –
