Although the area of work health and safety is usually perceived to be an extremely bland topic, Alex Thomas is making it her mission in life to disrupt that thinking in an effort to achieve genuine outcomes, rather than rhetoric.
Alex turns up the volume on what’s already working well in rural industries. She believes in dispelling some of the myths about work health and safety, acknowledging that culture change is seldom born from the ogres of fear, flight, fight, doom and gloom.
The real answer to making our farms safer is to engage and empower people to think and act differently. ‘#PlantASeedForSafety’ (and ‘#SaveALifeListenToYourWife!’) is that difference.
A pastoralist’s daughter with over thirteen years’ experience in work health and safety, Alexandra Thomas was the 2018 AgriFutures Rural Woman of the Year (SA) and winner of the 2018 SafeWork SA Augusta Zadow Award.
Alex’s passion for rural health and safety is inspired by her own experience as the daughter of a pastoralist. Her father battled a number of secondary illnesses after contracting the Q Fever virus while working with feral goats over 30 years ago. Alex is now a part-time carer for her disabled father...... take the opportunity to hear this unique message from Alex on 11th April
** Please note dining period for the Continental Buffet Breakfast is 7.00-7.30am. At 7.30am, attendees must be seated for the commencement of the Panel Discussion.
