OHS conference for all levels of nursing and midwifery

Occupational Health and Safety Conference

16 November 2018

Occupational Health & Safety issues have the potential to impact employees, patients and employers.

The overlap of the healthcare environment as a workplace can place potentially conflicting priorities and work demands on nurses, midwives and carers. Prioritising patient safety over staff safety (or vice versa) should not need to occur if appropriate systems are in place to ensure the safety of everyone. 

The Occupational Health & Safety Conference is a full-day event presented by the ANMF (Vic Branch) on Friday 16 November 2018.

The conference is aimed at all levels of nursing, midwifery and carers; it will feature expert speakers who will discuss:

- return to work

- occupational violence and aggression

- industrial manslaughter

- HSR powers and many more

The conference will feature key speakers

Dr Lana Cormie will present with Dave Brownlee from a personal perspective. In March Lana's husband, Charlie Howkins and Dave's son, Jack Brownlee were killed after a trench collapsed. Since their loss, Lana and Dave have joined together with other families to advocate for changes to OHS laws.

Dr Louisa Lam (Federation University) will present on 'Workplace aggression experiences of Victorian nurses and midwives study and findings'.

Dr Paul Sutton (Victorian Trades Hall Council), will discuss VTHC's industrial manslaughter campaign
