Click here to register for the RiskNZ Conference, to be held on 17 & 18 August 2017.
RiskNZ is the peak sector and professional body in New Zealand bringing together those people and organisations managing risk. It embraces the vision that New Zealand prospers because risk is well managed.
Each year we see events that demonstrate that New Zealand enterprises, regardless of type, are not immune to the consequences of poor risk management. These events suggest current approaches to risk management in many organisations are not as developed as they could be.
The ramifications are varied, but included loss of reputation, productivity and financial loss, death and injury, and prosecutions through our judicial system.
Membership of RiskNZ today includes many complex organisations with a vital interest in managing risk well. It includes many of New Zealand’s leading businesses and several government departments. DHBs, tertiary institutions and local authorities are also members, as are numerous SMEs in the private sector.
By acting now and joining RiskNZ you will ensure your organisation is amongst those leading NZ enterprises that are proactively strengthening their approaches to managing risk in order to prosper.
RiskNZ is delighted to offer a range of opportunities to sponsor our 2017 Conference......
RiskNZ is delighted to have Professor Helen Lingard (RMIT University, Melbourne) and Kevin Oldham (Navigatus Consulting) host a session at the RiskNZ Conference on Friday 18th August. In this Special Interest Group session that is likely to be of particular value to our members with a health and safety focus, they will examine:
1:15 – 2:00pm
Introduction of Safety in Design requirements into the Australian construction industry – a
points and risk acceptance criteria.
2:00 – 2:30pm
How safe is safe enough? A call to action.
Short presentation followed by discussion of need and feasibility of RiskNZ preparing guidance
material for SID and other risk practitioners.
About the speakers:
Professor Helen Lingard
RMIT University in Melbourne
Helen leads a program of research in the field of construction occupational
health and safety and work-life balance. Her work balances theoretical,
applied and translational research and focuses on addressing the practical challenges inherent in improving workers’ health, safety and wellbeing
in the construction industry.
In 2014 Professor Lingard co-authored Safety in Design for the Australian Constructors Association.
This seminal report summarised the findings from a five-year international benchmarking study of construction health and safety in Australia,
New Zealand and the United States.
With WorkSafe New Zealand planning to introducesimilar requirements
in New Zealand Professor Lingard provides a timely summary of learnings
from Safety in Design research and some observations from the Australian experience of implementing SID.
SID will apply not just to buildings, but to what’s inside them, including
machinery. SID processes will quickly become a benchmark for how
safety and risk are managed, which will pervade other sectors.
This is the future!
