Webinar: Omicron – Managing at Phase 2, Lessons from Australia

You are invited to this webinar on Monday, 28 February to help understand how major New Zealand organisations are working through Phase Two of Omicron, as well as lessons from the Australian Omicron experience.

Hosted by BusinessNZ, with support from the GM Safety Forum, HASANZ and the Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum, you will hear from Dr. Ian Norton (Managing Director of Respond Global), based in Australia. Dr. Norton was the head of WHO’s Emergency Medical Team Initiative from 2014-20 and led responses to Ebola, Diphtheria and Measles outbreaks, as well as other natural disasters. He is now focused on empowering others to be able to plan, prepare and respond to health emergencies in their own countries.

Dr. Norton will be joined by the Chief Health and Safety Officer at Fletcher Builder, Wendi Croft; and Air New Zealand’s General Manager of People, Safety and Aviation Medicine Darren Evans who will talk through how their organisations prepared for the Omicron wave, and how they’re managing now throughout Phase Two.

The webinar will also focus on:

  • Covid controls – what do we need to change and what can we keep as we manage a large Omicron wave.
  • What is the critical focus to address in this new context?
  • The GM Safety Forum’s new resource Living with Covid Principles – designed to support all New Zealand businesses.
