NSW WHS Networking and Information Forums

During National Safe Work Month, be part of Comcare's NSW Connect 2017 initiative in Northern NSW.

You are invited to join Inspectors in regional locations to share WHS information and innovation in a workshop on common WHS hazards.

Who should attend?

This forum is open to local workers, supervisors, Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) and WHS professionals in the Commonwealth jurisdiction.

Download the forum flyer [PDF] to print and place around your workplace to encourage attendance.

Topics

The forums will run in a workshop format focusing on two main hazard areas.

Psychosocial hazard management
Healthy at work—good work is good
for you!

Unpacking what psychosocial risk assessment means in the context of day to day people management.

This session explores:

  • What to look for when managing teams, organisational change, challenging behaviours and work place conflict.
  • What is “reasonably practicable” to comply with the WHS Act.
  • What does the regulator look for when reviewing psychosocial risks.
  • Where can you get advice or assistance?

Good work is generally good for mental and physical health and wellbeing, and even recovery from illness.

This session explores:

  • How can workplaces keep people healthy and
    productive?
  • The aging workforce—how can workplaces support
    older workers to help them sustain productive
    working lives and continue to contribute to the
    workplace?
  • Case studies on promoting health as a risk
    management strategy.
  • Where can you get advice or assistance?

Registration for all sessions opens at 8.45am.

All sessions will run from 9.00am - 12.00pm and include a networking morning tea to build and extend your WHS local networks.
