PDC Description:
To explore, learn and share new ideas on Transformational Occupational Hygiene (TOH).
My working definition of TOH is: aims to deliver effective occupational exposure risk management to hazardous agents* through vison, creativity, innovation, inspirational motivation and /influence and failure minimisation designs.

The objectives for the PDS are: (i) How to maximise OH business value demonstration and (ii) Exploring the delivery of adequate exposure control, productivity, and sustainability through designing failure minimisation approaches using a number of real-world problem solving exercises.

Who is not only interested in OH, but on productivity, sustainability, communication, utilising behavioural approaches in OH and business value delivery. A positive mind for change, embracing new approaches, thinking the unthinkable to practice transformational OH.

Learning Outcomes:
How to apply communication principles; How to think outside the box for developing new ideas including control measure; why the understanding of MINDSPACE is vital for better practice of OH; Thinking in the space of engineering designs so that OHs can work productively with engineers and suppliers. Ideas for presenting effective business report instead of pages of traditional OH reports.
