On behalf of the Safety Institute of Australia, we invite you to attend a workshop providing a hands-on experience using The Office of Industrial Relations’ online return on investment calculator at 5.00pm (AEST) on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

The session will explore two mock scenarios and how the online calculator can be used to tackle different WHS risks.

Participants of this workshop will be requested to provide their professional feedback on their experience using the online calculator, which will contribute to the results of Olivia’s PhD study and provide recommendations to improve the online calculator.
