National Workers Compensation Summit 2019

Adele:
Hi. It’s Adele and Justin from Safety People. We’re here just to talk about the National Worker’s Compensation Conference that we attended over the past two days, thought we’d give you a bit of a recap on some of the learnings. What did you take away from the second part of yesterday’s presentation, Justin?

Justin:
Yeah, I really like the use of technology and the ability to reduce risk and improve safety and efficiency that was highlighted in the Australia Post case study, which I found really enthralling, especially the roll-out of their electronic delivery vehicles, the number in their workforce, which is about 75,000, and they’ve got, currently, over 2,000 active claims. So, that was really insightful. They’ve had some great success, and obviously, it’s leader-led, so that was interesting.

Adele:
Great. What about the afternoon session?

Justin:
Afternoon sessions. Well, it’s always hard to present after lunch ’cause it’s always the graveyard shift, but what kept our attention was the presentation from the AFL Players Association, which really summarized, well, for all the players that have either played one or 300 games. They have this network of psychological services and improving mental health across the board both past and present players.

Adele:
Fantastic. Yeah, they were both really interesting case studies. We picked up lots of information, lots of case studies, and workshop information that we’d be happy to share, so if you weren’t able to make it along to the conference, get in touch with us. We’d be happy to give you some information that might help you solve a worker’s comp-related concern or issue. We’ve really enjoyed being here. It’s been a good conference overall.

Justin:
It has, yeah. Good interaction, met a lot of people. Look forward to sharing the insights that we’ve learned.

Adele:
Great. Thanks.
