Thought Leadership 2017 #2 The Tech Disruption
Tech, big data, virtual reality and predictive analytics are all terms that we have become accustomed to hearing. But who is using them effectively and what role do they play in actually preventing workplace injuries?
Join us as we explore how technology can assist in the prevention of workplace injuries and help to minimise workplace risks.
THE USE OF WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY TO IDENTIFY AND REDUCE WORKPLACE INJURY RISK

Wearable tech is a term that is commonly thrown around but how can it be used effectively within one’s work environment? Scott Coleman will share his insights on the different types of wearable technology that are being worn in workplace, how the technology can be useful in identifying injury risks and what the future of wearable tech will look like in the workplace.
ENTERPRISE VIRTUAL REALITY: HOW THIS NEW VISUAL COMPUTING PLATFORM IS BEING USED TODAY
Aaron Spencer (Panedia)
While most of us are talking about VR and how it could be used within our organisations, Aaron and his team are making this a reality. Creating virtual training environments is no longer a pipedream, it’s happening now and it is having a profound impact on how employees receive high level training in the workplace. Aaron will share his views on the many uses of VR and share how he believes the technology can be used across all organisations not in 5 years’ time, not next year, but now!
FITNESS FOR DUTY, A SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED WAY TO MEASURE FATIGUE AND MANAGE THE RISK THROUGH WEARABLE TECH
Allan Wildbore (Sustainable Performance Partners)
Fatigue is a workplace risk that most organisations are exposed to. Whether it’s because of a transient workforce, the operational needs of the business or a high stress working environment, fatigue is a serious health risk to all businesses. Allan Wildborewill explore how technology can be used to understand the dangers associated with fatigue and sleep, and he will reveal how through the use of innovative technology, organisations can implement preventative measures to minimize their expose to risk.
BIG DATA AND PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS…WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN FOR YOUR ORGANISATION’S INJURY PREVENTION STRATEGY?

In an age where we are inundated with information, how can organisations move from data collection to actionable insights?

Scott has become one of the leading innovators in the OHS industry through his use of wearable technology and Sports Science methodology to identify and reduce musculoskeletal injury risk. This approach evolved from the combination of over 20 years of experience working with elite athletes for organisations including the Australian Institute of Sport, Rowing Australia and Athletics Australia, with the skills developed working in private practice treating injured workers. Over the past five years Scott has been partnering with large organisations and Workers’ Compensation insurance brokers / agents to reduce the costs associated with workplace injury. At the core of Scott’s work is the ability to reduce the injury risk of workers by combining sports injury prevention techniques, movement analysis using wearable technology / data analytics and the psycho-social elements specific to the individual and the workplace.
