Meet The Speakers

Key Conference

The event will centre on several themes that will dominate discussions in businesses everywhere for the next decade: psychosocial risk management, burnout, the integrated approach to workplace mental health, and sexual harassment prevention.

Each of these themes are about creating good work that is good for people, profits and the planet. So expect links to sustainability, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. A transdisciplinary approach is required, and PHS Con will cater to all audiences from human resources and health and safety related fields of work.

Psychosocial Risk Management

With all Australian states to have WHS regulations in force, there is an ongoing need to understand what good looks like to prevent foreseeable psychological harm to workers. Hear from experts and WHS regulators.


One of the biggest themes coming out of the Covid pandemic will be discussed by the two foremost experts on the topic sharing how organisations can move towards sustainable people performance.

The Integrated Approach to Workplace Mental Health

10 years on from the landmark journal article, we have assembled the three main authors to discuss progress, including how the model has been adopted internationally by the likes of the WHO and ILO.

Sexual Harassment Prevention

Following the Respect@Work report in 2020, sexual harassment prevention has moved from a purely IR issue to a clear WHS issue. Hear from experts on how to address unsafe behaviour systemically through a risk-based lens.
