Webinar details

Learn about tools that can help you identify and address the physical and psychosocial factors that contribute to workplace injuries. We'll show you the new systems thinking incident review (STIR) app, developed in collaboration with Monash University to help employers review incidents using a systems-thinking approach. We'll also discuss a participative hazard identification and risk management (APHIRM) toolkit, a set of OHS risk management procedures that target both physical and psychosocial hazards which was developed by a team of La Trobe University researchers in the Centre for Ergonomics and Human Factors. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions in this interactive session.
