RTWN005: How to Identify and Prevent Injuries with Paul Hopcraft from preVentia

My guest today is Paul Hopcraft from business consulting firm preVentia.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The lead-up factors prior to a claim
  • The importance of having a pro-active system around health and wellbeing
  • Management interventions are being missed and catching these can prevent injuries
  • Consistency with management processes can reduce claims costs
  • How a Consultant Doctor can support your systems

I give you my three takeaways from talking to Paul:

  1. Managers at the coalface are critically important in the injury prevention process
  2. Employers: implement and apply a consistent system around health and wellbeing
  3. WorkCover insurers: build senior relationships during the good times

Paul also fills us in on Leaders For Change and Anda Cove Beach Resort (that gets rave reviews on Trip Advisor by the way), his philanthropic passion in the Philippines.

We have a motivational quote from the godfather of modern business: Jack Welch.

You can contact Paul or Mark via the preVentia website or calling 1300 137 831.
