How Wellness impacts Safety

By gaining a greater understanding of the complexities of pain, and analysing the typical pathways to manage injuries the audience can evaluate their own current systems. It will solidify the audience’ knowledge surrounding Wellness and its interaction with the management and identification of injury, fatigue and mental wellness. These ideas are a collaboration from the sporting field, pain science and behavioural sciences in a new paradigm that we can use to think about the workplace. Organisations need to begin to think about the human element onsite and not just the Zero harm approach, but improve health from the workplace.
