Conservative Risk Assessments

One of the things that tends to happen when we work in frontline service organisations – in particular service organisations like fire, ambulance, police and defence, is that often a conservative risk assessment is applied if a member identifies that something they experienced in the course of their work, has affected them negatively.


One of the conversations I often have with organisations is about validating the experiences of their employee's. When conflict in the work environment leads to one person taking stress leave, it is important to validate the stressed person’s perspective, regardless of who or what has resulted in the conflict.

Mental Fitness

It has only been over the past decade that I have focussed more on my physical fitness, to assist with my health and wellbeing, and manage my injuries. Going to the gym multiple times a week helps me to gain and maintain strength and reduces my pain experience from injuries that I sustained over 15 years ago.
