On August 13 2019, the Centre for Work Health and Safety in Sydney conducted its first colloquium at which workplace health and safety researchers could meet and compare notes. I was able to attend and speak with Skye Buatava, the Interim Director, about the event.
This episode was recorded at a recent safety trade show in Sydney Australia and contains an interview with one of the managers of a new mobile safety eyewear optometrist show. The service is another example of bringing safety products and services to worksites, similar to audiometric testing but this one includes both diagnosis and solutions.

This episode includes a conversation with Glen Poole, the CEO of the Australian Men's Health Forum while at the Australian Labor Party's National Conference in Adelaide on December 16 2018. We discuss the importance of men's health and the relevance of the workplace in generating and managing workplace mental health.
