Event description


Note this event is also run in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. Refer to separate Eventbrite ads for registrations.

Safety Specialists (Professionals and Practitioners) are change agents. You create change at all levels of the organisation. At an individual level, you influence personnel to change the way they work. At a business level you change the way the business unit operates and at an organisational level you change the way the organisation carries out its business. In addition, you need to be aware of and be able and willing to discuss the safety impact of proposed changes initiated in other parts of the business.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Describe the characteristics of successful and unsuccessful change initiatives;
  • Apply several commonly used organisational change approaches to your change initiatives;
  • Explain the integrated, systems nature, of organisations and how the importance of identifying the impact of change on all organisation systems — avoid or reduce “unforeseen” consequences;
