Bringing safety to the table: Best practices in developing an integrated and business-savvy health and safety strategy.
As WHS professionals either engaged by organisations externally or part of an internal functional group, we are often called upon to contribute to strategic discussions and planning processes. Sometimes we may even be proactively developing a WHS strategy that shapes business investment, resource allocation, and operational activities. But what does an effective health and strategy look like? And how should a WHS professional go about developing such a strategy? In this practice-oriented session, Dr Tristan Casey (Chief Scientist at Work Science) will describe a series of case studies and a method that WHS professionals can use to craft their own WHS strategy. Guiding principles to ensure the strategy is contemporary, integrated with broader business goals, and responsive to the external environment will also be shared.
