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!
