Emerging OHS risks and strategies in Ballarat

On 25 February 2020, I spoke at a breakfast seminar at the Ballarat Regional Occupational Safety & Health Group (BROSH) on emerging OHS risks and strategies. Below is an edited version of that talk, which touched on CORVID19, bushfire smoke, sexual harassment, mental health, safety culture and communication:

Industrial Manslaughter

Industrial Manslaughter laws
will come into effect in Victoria in the middle of this year.  Anyone who thinks these laws may relate to
their workplace or how their businesses are run, should be afraid.  But they should also be ashamed.  If they are worried about going to jail
because their OHS decisions may be negligent, they are not managing the safety
and health of their workers in the way the law intended, or the Regulator and
the community expects.  They should
be ashamed.
