Why do we struggle so to consistently create records of Safety in Design on all of our projects across our practices? In this webinar, Jennekin Dicks highlights the natural reasons for our resistance and the practical measures to overcome it. This will include a look at what truly sits within the boundary of our legislated duty, what sits outside it, where we are making a rod for our own backs in our own processes, and the simple steps we can take to create useful momentum in our safety conversation.
Jennekin has studied the response to Safety in Design legislation since its 2007 release in Queensland and then again for most states with the 2011 WHS National Bill. Based on this study of the legislation and an understanding of the knowledge and pressures within design practices, Jennekin then developed process and training solutions, which she has regularly embedded within her client base over the past few years.
Jennekin Dicks is the owner of Brisbane-based consultancy Management in Action. As a past architect and consultant to design practices, Jennekin investigates the detail of our processes and helps to embed effective solutions. She does this with a 'systems for people' focus. She consults, writes, presents CPD talks and workshops, plus drives internal change projects for her clients. Specialised areas include profitability management, certified management systems (QA, OHS and Environment) and engaging staff in the Safety in Design process.
