This episode was recorded at a recent safety trade show in Sydney Australia and contains an interview with one of the managers of a new mobile safety eyewear optometrist show. The service is another example of bringing safety products and services to worksites, similar to audiometric testing but this one includes both diagnosis and solutions.

This episode is part 2 of my keynote presentation at the Heads of Workplace Safety Authorities Inspectors forum in Tasmania recently.
This podcast is an edited version of the second half of that presentation. This time I discuss the “primary duty of care”, the role of unions, the new work structures, Industrial manslaughter laws, the need to operate in a coordinated cooperative method across disciplines and organisations, notifiable psychological incidents and supply chains

Recently I was invited to provide a non-regulatory perspective and to be challenging and provocative at a conference in Tasmania. It was organised by WorkSafe Tasmania as part of the efforts by the Heads of Workplace Safety Authorities to strengthen the connections between workplace health and safety inspectors throughout Australia and New Zealand.
This podcast is an edited version of the first half of that presentation in which I talk about a little bit of business bullshit, resilience, the down side of “as far as is reasonably practicable” and psychological harm, and how this may affect the role of the Inspector.
