The Ageing Workforce and WHS - Preparing for the Future

The Safety Institute of Australia would like to invite you to the Ageing Workforce event held on Wednesday 9th November 2016. There has been much said about Australia’s ageing population. One of the key discussion points around this topic is whether having a mature workforce is an opportunity or a threat? Regardless of the side of the fence you sit on, many employers believe that an ageing (mature) workforce will have a large impact on their organisations, and most have not started to fully evaluate the opportunities and risks.
