Cost: $1500 + GST per day (discounted 75%) plus travel

Duration: 1 day

Course Overview:

What is a Learning Review and how is it different from a traditional investigation? Learning Reviews differ from traditional investigations in their purpose, the way they’re conducted and the focus of the recommendations. The purpose of a Learning Review is to learn and improve. They’re conducted in a way that is designed to uncover how the incident happened, including things that might not be revealed by a traditional investigation. The recommendations are focused on improving the whole ‘system’ (the way work is done in forestry) rather than on individuals.

What your people will get:

A simple, engaging process to improve the way they work completed in two steps. This workshop teaches and empowers workers as the experts they are in their forestry roles and allows them to contribute to their workplace in meaningful ways.

What other people say:

“Extremely practical.”
