For 99% of human history we all did a great job of working together, trusting and caring for each other, and focusing on what mattered most to keep ourselves safe and alive. What has happened in the most recent 1%? Why do our innate human fears and psychological conditions formed thousands of years ago now create huge challenges to changing behaviours and creating strong safety cultures?
Drawing on the latest global psychological and anthropological research, supported by fascinating real-life stories, this presentation explores how our world has inherently changed around us as humans, and how those changes impact directly on organisational culture and performance. We look at how modern-day factors - continuous states of distraction, the 'technology tsunami', and the increase in micro-laziness - are creating even more challenges for organisations seeking to improve performance.
The audience are left with memorable stories and concepts, plus practical techniques to apply what has been learnt from traditional societies, in order to influence their people to better engagement and performance.

Until recently, quantitative assessments for identifying musculoskeletal disorder risk factors in the workplace required in-depth training, competency, and practice. Ergonomics teams would get bogged down by the dreaded “paralysis by analysis” and spend valuable time finding issues in the workplace versus spending time fixing them.
With recent advances in technology including artificial intelligence and computer vision, it is now possible to democratize ergonomics—involve everyone in optimizing the workplace.
Ergonomics teams can be equipped with tools that help them solve problems more accurately, quickly, and effectively. This session will explore the role of technology, how to increase team effectiveness, and scale ergonomics across an enterprise.

‘Safety Differently’ was first explored as a concept within CHEP in 2018, in the search to better understand human behaviour and their response to workplace conditions. The change arose through the realisation that one of the key measures of safety was plateauing and the introduction of a new approach to safety management would open more opportunity for greater improvement.
The presentation explores the CHEP journey through the Safety Differently lens; from its beginnings, to building wider engagement throughout the business. It looks at some of the key learnings along the way, and how CHEP adapted, to eventually bring about a change in the way the business responds to situations that arise in the workplace.

“A psychologically healthy and safe workplace is one that promotes workers' psychological wellbeing and actively works to prevent harm to worker psychological health, including in negligent, reckless or intentional ways”. This definition assigns two responsibilities to employers: 1) prevent harm; and 2) promote wellbeing.
This workshop will explore how risk management and health promotion can be deployed at scale with FlourishDx to enable proactive (as opposed to reactive) mental health care for employees. The important role of the line manager and how they can be empowered to lead psychological health and safety at a work group level will be discussed.

Past, present and future views of safety, despite all their differences, will inevitably agree on one thing: evidence-based practice is the key to learning. But what age-old societal burden prevents us from unlocking evidence that currently exists within our businesses; the evidence that we so desperately need to improve?
This presentation redefines what should be accepted as evidence in an increasingly complex world, and through making one small (yet very difficult) change, shows how we can make evidence-based practice our modus operandi.

What gets measured gets done, or so we believe! Today many organisations are driven by metrics and dashboards. The result of this often means that we focus on efficiency, getting stuff done quickly, as opposed to being thorough, i.e. being effective. This mindset appears to be increasingly driving the familiar routine;
The result of all of this, Management Systems become a convenient mechanism for managing administrative work (safety work) without affecting the safety of work.
Organisations need to move towards approaches that are more focused on learning and understanding. Approaches that accept the inherent complexity of the modern workplace, and in turn take systemic action to improve performance rather than falling back on simple explanations and familiar fixes.
Human and Organisational Performance (HOP) is an approach or philosophy that focuses on building an understanding of how organisations and people work together with the aim of enhancing performance. Specifically the learning team method is focused on taking the time to truly understand, with the aid of frontline personnel, how work is happening and the best way to make it better.

We all have to deal with a rapidly changing business world. Developments such as increased automation and intensifying global competition add complexity and stress to our daily lives. But what if you worked for a company like Tesla, where innovation and rapidly-paced change are part of your daily routine? Are there any lessons learned at Tesla that we can apply to our own dynamic work environments? Laurie Shelby, Vice President, EHS, Tesla, will share some of her challenges and lessons learned.

The importance of visible, felt leadership is well recognized in establishing a mature safety culture. But what forms should this take and what do good senior leadership actions look like? Is seeing and “feeling” senior leaders in the field enough? Many organizations have KPIs around Leadership Talks or similar activities. Senior leaders and Boards influence safety outcomes in many ways, and the biggest impact may not be due to what they say when in the field. Are we effectively using the skills and experience of senior leaders to critically assess the way work is planned and done? What is the right balance between general field conversations and ensuring “Safety 101”? In this roundtable discussion we will encourage participants to share thoughts and good practices around positive leadership involvement – what works well/ what doesn’t.

The community is aware that violence occurs in emergency departments and towards paramedics across the nation. It is less well known that patients, clients, family and bystanders are also violent and aggressive towards paramedics. Some of the violence is caused by people affected by alcohol, drugs and mental illness. However, a large number of assaults are by angry people under stress.
This session will show the amplitude of occupational violence challenges, teach you what you can do to reduce it in your workplace and show you a few defensive moves. Who knows these moves could save your life!

The Health Benefits of Good Work (HBGW) is an initiative from the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (AFOEM) of The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). This initiative is based on compelling Australasian and international evidence that good work is beneficial to people’s health and wellbeing and that long-term work absence, work disability and unemployment generally have a negative impact on health and wellbeing.
This session will explain how employers can get involved with the program and the value that applying the principles can bring to their workplaces.
