Safety in Design Liberation

2 August 2018

Would your practice benefit from a simpler, more streamlined process when it comes to Safety in Design? Book NOW for the September ACA Insight webinar to learn more.

For our ACA webinar on 19 September, Jennekin Dicks will focus on Safety in Design legislation, highlighting the natural reasons for our resistance and the practical measures to overcome it. Jennekin will investigate exactly what sits within the boundary of our legislated duty, what sits outside, where we are making a rod for our own backs in our own processes, and the simple steps we can take to create useful momentum in our safety conversation.

Jennekin has studied the response to Safety in Design legislation since its 2007 release in Queensland and then again for most states with the 2011 WHS National Bill. Based on this study of the legislation and an understanding of the knowledge and pressures within design practices, Jennekin then developed process and training solutions, which she has regularly embedded within her client base over the past few years.

Our speaker – Jennekin Dicks

Jennekin Dicks is the owner of Brisbane-based consultancy Management in Action. As a past architect and consultant to design practices, Jennekin investigates the detail of our processes and helps to embed effective solutions. She does this with a ‘systems for people’ focus. She consults, writes, presents CPD talks and workshops, plus drives internal change projects for her clients. Specialised areas include profitability management, certified management systems (QA, OHS and Environment) and engaging staff in the Safety in Design process.
