AFOEM Victoria — The Kevin Sleigh Lecture 2020
19 Oct 2020 at 6:15 PM to 7:30 PM
AFOEM, ANSZOM and Worksafe Victoria
'A Hard Landing', presented by Dr Ian Hosegood, Director of Medical Services at Qantas, will explore the effects of COVID-19 in the aviation industry.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented 'black swan' event for airlines. It presents devastating financial impacts and unique health and safety challenges to aviation employees and passengers.
The novel nature of SARS CoV-2 means that biological occupational and public health risks need to be assessed and managed in an evolving and agile way.
During peaks of the outbreak, organisations cannot rely on government public health advice or action to prevent or mitigate workplace infections. We need a proactive and pre-emptive approach and specialist occupational medicine.
The pandemic presents serious challenges to mental health across entire populations. We need a proactive approach to support employees and raise their resilience.
