Jayde Dwight's insight:

I think infographic's are an effective tool to present information, it summarises information succinctly and creatively in order to capture people's attention. This particular infographic clearly illustrates current OHS statistics in Australia, something I would display in a lunch room or area visited regularly.

Health. Safety. Training.
Jayde Dwight's insight:

Predictions that 83% of the mining workforce will be fly-in-fly-out are important to me because I hope to work on this kind of contract in the next 5 years. It also specifically talks about job prospects for those living on the Gold Coast- which is my home town and where I hope to be based in the future.

Maintaining a safe and healthy workplace is the theme for the first ever PNG Mining and Petroleum Occupational Health and Safety conference in Port Moresby.
Jayde Dwight's insight:

Living in PNG has made me aware of how under-developed the OHS field is here. Australia has really set a great benchmark in regard to legislation and workplace policies.

Rob Stummer* investigates how the national OH&S laws have affected you.
Jayde Dwight's insight:

Although efforts have been made to harmonise OHS legislation nationwide, discrepancies between States still exist. It is evident that a one-size-fits-all solution is not the answer.

Jayde Dwight's insight:

An interesting way to present Australia's OHS statistics, I think that to make OHS relevant to workers, the information must be presented in different and interesting ways. Something I will strive for in my career.

Jayde Dwight's insight:

This paper highlights the differences in OHS requirements between countries (specifically PNG), their workers and their particular environments. I would love to help introduce OHS into a country like PNG that has no current legislation in place, it would certainly have it challenges!

Occupational Health and Safety: The Universally Required Qualification

Occupational Health and Safety: The Universally Required Qualification | Quest 1 | Scoop.it

Via William Cowie
Jayde Dwight's insight:

Most often, when people think of occupational health and safety they immediately think that jobs are only relevant in construction or mining. Yet in Australia the most dangerous jobs are in transport and agriculture. It is apparent that there is a need for occupational health and safety professionals in ALL fields of work, rather than those 'percieved' as dangerous.

William Cowie's curator insight, June 16, 2013 8:04 PM

Too often we think of occupational health and safety and immediately think of mining or construction. Yet the most dangerous industries in Australia are agriculture, forestry, fishing, transport, postal and warehousing. There are deaths in just about every industry each year, highlighting the need for occupational health and safety professionals in all fields, not just those perceived as dangerous.
