by on

Paulo Gomes, Regional Senior Safety Adviser with Downer's off-the-road tyre management business Otraco has received high praise for his presentation at the Safety in Hazardous Industries Conference in Brisbane.

Presenting a case study titled 'Examining How Challenging the Right People Leads to the Best Safety Result', Paulo explained the importance of identifying site safety restraints, outlining strategies for utilizing in-house talents and demonstrating the importance of overcoming resource obstacles. Paulo also reinforced the fact that we will always find the best solution amongst the workforce.

Commenting on the presentation Paulo said: "the conference was a great opportunity to share information about our working knowledge of the importance of empowering people to become the solution, and to expand on this by learning from the experience of other organisations".

Paulo's presentation received high praise from Professor Sidney Dekker MA Msc PhD, Safety Science Innovation Lab, Griffith University. In particular Professor Dekker praised Paulo's reference to openly learning from how work is actually done and gaining an understanding of what is getting in the way of safe work practices.
