The continuous disruption of technology in the workplace is now our daily reality. Intended to improve productivity and increase efficiency, professionals are more reliant on technology than ever before and health and safety professionals are no different.

But, what is the best way to manage this critical and always evolving shift in the way we do work?

While technology brings an abundance of benefits to an organisation, it also presents challenges… How can we integrate technology into our workplaces to enjoy all its benefits whilst overcoming the negative effects that can follow, such as the development of transactional relationships that lack empathy? How can we use technology in health and safety to grow and lift the performance of our organisations and get ahead in our careers?

It’s  this topic our Client Partner,  Tim Gilchrist will be speaking to at this year’s Safety Institute of Australia’s  Visions Conference, which also marks its 25th Anniversary.

The reality is, the trend towards automation and faster production through technology isn’t going anywhere and leaders In health and safety need to be at the forefront of this change to stay relevant and competitive. From experimenting with different technology tools to getting more involved in initiatives across the workplace,  Tim will share a range of tactics that individuals can utilise to get ahead of the disruption curve.

This year’s conference is held in Toowoomba from 21-23 May 2017. For full conference details, visit the  Visions Conference website.

 

Update – The slides used at the conference are now hosted here on SlideShare for your convenience.
