Tuesday May 11: Central Safety Group - Using technology to make work safer  
Speaker: Gavin Kenny, Manager SHEQ - Service Delivery, Melbourne Water

Melbourne Water is a statutory body which supplies high-quality water, provides reliable sewerage services, integrates drainage systems to prevent flooding and enhances waterways and land for Melbourne and its surrounds. Gavin will talk about the changes involved, how they were introduced and the resulting efficiency gains.

These new systems are integrated with and supported by the organisation’s existing IT systems. He will describe the transition from using cumbersome, paper-based processes to easy-to-use digital systems. Among other things, this has made safety data at Melbourne Water more transparent and easy to access, making it easier to analyse trends.
