My personal journey implementing a risk-based Health and Safety strategy on Australia’s largest Public Transport Project

Sydney Metro is an iconic project with a broad representation of construction disciplines and risk areas. The intent of the presentation is to share some of the best practice innovations on the project and the challenges in implementing new initiatives. These challenges are present for any safety professional wishing to initiate change and will provide some tools to assist in implementing strategy. It is intended that the lessons will be relevant no matter what industry the audience work in, and will be relate-able to all attendees.

The key take aways from the presentation will be about the different tools and strategies required to implement change. Specifically these outcomes will be about negotiation, commercial and contractual frameworks, governance, leadership and engagement.

At the end of the session, audience members should better understand the complexities of implementing change, identify some of the barriers that may be present in their own organisations, and how these barriers can be overcome.
