Victorian Chapter of AIOH has been busily talking to local members and looking at opportunities to vary the format of how we meet. We are excited to announce our series of 'a day in the life of...' These events will focus on sharing an insight to real-world challenges and opportunities for Hygienists across the State, via site visits or 'virtual tours' plus discussion of what takes up our valuable time on a day-to-day basis.
Our first scheduled event will look at a day in the life of Catie Redshaw, Manufacturing S&S Manager/Group Occupational Hygienist at Dulux Group Limited. Catie has been working in the areas of Occupational Hygiene and Workplace Health and Safety for 15 years, with industry experience in UK, New Zealand and Australia. Catie has recently completed her Masters in Occupational Hygiene and has been gathering a collection of awards ever since. Catie was the winner of the Industrial Scientific AIOH award at 2017 Conference and more recently awarded the honour of 2018 Top WHS Student from University of Wollongong.
