Placing mental and physical health at the top of your safety checklist

Placing mental and physical health at the top of your safety checklist

9 May 2017, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Safety & Risk Solutions Theatre

English (Australia)

Paramedic and State Trauma Councillor Paul Spinks, has seen the dark side of what happens when life spins out of control. One in two of us are now depressed and between the ages of 15 and 44 suicide is the leading cause of death in this country. Is it time we are all engaged at a different level? 

You will be shocked to learn where cracks can form in your mental and physical health and why it’s a reasonable theory that we must try new approaches to address the elephant in the room. Placing layers of training and surface level concepts on how to better behave and perform, may only lead to reduced outcomes.

You may be certified to do the job but how certified you are at life itself will determine your effectiveness in the workplace!
Paul regards mental and physical health at the top of the list when it comes to our overall performance and especially in the workplace; without this not only do we under-perform at home, but we most definitely won’t perform at work.

It is without doubt the number one epidemic in this country that is holding us back and workplaces that don’t believe it’s their duty of care will feel it in the bottom line.

In this session Paul will discuss how safety managers can help foster the health and well-being of team members, inspiring change and providing a tool kit to act on - to bring about purpose, direction, retention and meaning into the workplace.
