Dear Friends and Colleagues

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am starting my own business, making online safety training videos, and I need your advice.

As many of you know, I’ve been a safety engineer for many years. That’s how many of us met. I enjoy the work and helping clients to achieve good solutions, but working for the public and private sectors has it’s frustrations.  Money, politics and sometimes oversized egos often manage to get in the way! I suspect that I am not alone in this experience.

So, I’ve decided to provide training on system safety and related topics online. Using the internet allows me to reach anyone, anywhere efficiently. Interested individuals can connect to quality training at their convenience while keeping the price affordable.  No corporations, no contracts, no middle management. Users can access training anonymously if they wish, so nobody needs to be embarrassed about what they don’t – yet – know.

I have started to post some resources on my website, and I would appreciate your honest feedback on what you find there.  

Friends and Colleagues: What do you wish you had learnt a bit earlier in your career? What would have helped you, your employer, your clients? What would help your less experienced colleagues?

Snapshot – Australian WHS

A snapshot: What is the Australian Work Health and Safety Act?

Nationally harmonised work health and safety laws

The WHS Act like that of most other jurisdictions is based on the ‘model’ WHS Act developed by Safe Work Australia. The aim is to provide all workers in Australia with the same standard of health and safety protection regardless of the work they do or where they work. A stronger national approach means greater certainty for businesses (particularly those operating across state borders) and over time reduced compliance costs for business. More consultation between businesses, workers and their representatives, along with clearer responsibilities will make workplaces safer for everyone. The harmonised work health and safety laws apply in the majority of jurisdictions. For more information about whether they apply in your jurisdiction check with your local regulator.

Snapshot – What is ‘Safe’?

Why we want it, why we need it, and the great opportunities for those who can deliver it!

What is Safe?

Instinctively, we want to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm.

Our global society demands mass-produced goods, transportation, industrial-scale healthcare and utilities, and an ever-expanding range of leisure pursuits – but delivering all of these things come with risk.  How can we run the complex systems that provide these benefits, while protecting workers and the public from harm?

Increasingly, the answer is through a systematic and disciplined approach throughout the life of these huge enterprises.  This brings a massive opportunity for the individuals and organizations who can understand and deliver such benefits in our complex world.

More Safety Artisan Videos are coming soon!

I hope that you enjoyed this video snapshot: What is ‘safe’?
