Speaker: Chelsea Cook, National SHEQ Manager, Defence Housing Australia
Chelsea joined Defence Housing Australia (DHA) in August 2013 as National Manager for Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) where recently one of her major initiatives, the “First Response” program received the Comcare 2016 “Prevention” Award. She is currently leading DHA’s Alliance for Wellbeing at Work, a major project focusing on psychosocial safety climate and an extensive strategy to manage the wellbeing of staff. The program aims to increase an individual’s capability to recover during times of decline in wellbeing and to increase the capacity for the organisation to build a thriving workplace culture in the long term.
