Synopsis and overview of the session

Today’s workforce faces increasingly complex and high-risk working conditions. An aging skilled workforce, pandemic redundancies and furlough, and new complex technologies and products have created a new dynamic.

Do traditional WHS methodologies meet the challenge?

Focus Network, in partnership with Avetta, invite you to join this upcoming private lunch gathering where we will discuss the importance of worker health and safety, compliance and verification challenges, and the role of technology for the WHS professional managing workforce safety for employees and contractors. We’ll map the compliance journey, from supplier risk classification, through professional audits and supply chain data insight and analytics.

Some of the key learnings you will take away from this session include:

  • Discovering how digital transformation can play a role in modern worker safety.
  • Unpicking worker compliance and verification challenges.
  • Understanding technology as a tool for transparency and risk management across your entire workforce – from employees to contractors.
  • Identifying workforce management best practice principals and practical approaches
