John Holland are Australia and New Zealand's leading end-to-end infrastructure, building, rail and multi-modal transport company.

Work Health and Safety in the construction industry has always been a challenge and has long experienced high rates of workplace accidents and fatalities. Discover how Colin has tackled the complex task of fostering a culture of safety and wellbeing within this diverse and complex industry.

Colin brings a wealth of experience from his involvement in various manufacturing and construction sectors across Australia, Southeast Asia and New Zealand. In industries including power generation in gas, coal and renewables, high voltage energy installations including distribution and transmission lines, industrial manufacturing, and in transport, previously in rail and now in civil road construction.

During his presentation, Colin will share his experiences and insights on building a generative safety culture, touching on topics like specialised programs that support wellbeing maturity, education around suicide prevention and mental health, increasing the wisdom of people on better sleep, financial literacy, improving physical health, alcohol and gambling support, and what all this means to keeping people safe while they perform their day jobs and in their personal lives.

The future of safety in Australia's profession and industry awaits your exploration!

Sports Science and Wearable Sensors for Industry

Picture a world where every employee is equipped with a personal injury prevention coach, much like the ones our sports stars have access to. Instead of a one-size-fits-all training program, these coaches would tailor their guidance to an individual's unique movement patterns and job responsibilities and teach them how to prevent future injuries.

Envision a scenario where both managers and injured workers can monitor daily work progress during a rehabilitation program, reducing the risk of reinjury. These insights, too, are being facilitated by computer technology today.

The Preventure team has embarked on an eight-year journey to translate the technology and methodology used in elite sports, into an effective, evidence-based (and sustainable) workplace solution.

Join us for a deep dive into the health science that sits behind the data, and an examination of real case studies form workplaces. Including the real costs involved in implementing a wearable sensor program.
