Event description

Description

The Launch – the official unveiling of the UQ Health, Safety and Wellness Strategy 2017-2021. We will hear from Professor Aiden Byrne, Provost, on the health, safety and wellness vision and principles behind the strategy and its connection to the overall UQ Strategy. Jim Carmichael will present on the priorities within the strategy and its implementation.

Following a networking morning tea, Mr Daniel Hummerdal will present a keynote on “Doing safety differently”. Daniel is a safety innovation expert and will present a compelling case for improving safety in functional ways where people are solution.

The launch will then feature a panel discussion with senior leaders from EAIT Faculty. This discussion will reflect on the recent Safety Leadership in Action pilot the faculty participated in and how they felt it has made an impact on safety.

Daniel Hummerdal - After an initial career as commercial pilot, Daniel studied psychology. Since then, he has worked as accident investigator with the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration, as a Human Factors consultant with Dedale (France), Safety innovation leader in engineering, construction and mining, and been engaged in industrial safety research in Sweden, France and Australia. Now, Director of Safety Innovation at Art of Work, Daniel facilitates masterclasses in enabling safety, leadership and innovation. Daniel is the founder safetydifferently.com and his goal is to help organisations to find new and more functional ways to improve safety.
