Health, safety and the workplace in the post covid world: planning for better outcomes for worker and workplaces in 2020s Australia

The coming of the coronavirus has changed the trajectory of Australia. Not just in relation to trade and security but especially in the workplace. New businesses, new processes, new reporting lines and a new imperative to get Australia moving and to compete on the global stage. But there is more to OH&S and WH&S than recovery from the pandemic; there is a heightened awareness about risk, about maintaining productivity, about managing new ways of working.

New industries are evolving.  Manufacturing is set to return to Australia on a large scale. A new generation of management (young Millennials) have new ideas about managing risk. Bernard Salt, one of Australia’s leading social commentators leapt at the chance to speak on this topic at this conference.  Master of the acronym, and populariser of the term smashed avocado, Bernard promises to inform, inspire and amuse with his data, his evidence-based insight and his unique take on modern Australian life.  Do not miss this session.
