His work with many of Australia's - and the world's - leading companies, government departments and statutory authorities involves assessing the overall "health" of the organisation. These assessments cover occupational / work and all other related areas such as industrial relations, compensation management, organisational dynamics and safety leadership. Activities include conducting comprehensive OHS Needs Audits and Training Needs Analyses, developing and implementing practical OHS management processes and programs, research and training.
David believes health and safety issues often indicate other more fundamental issues, so he explores the opportunities to add value to the whole organisation - through controlling hazards and risks to peoples' health, safety and well-being - and organisational health, productivity and morale.
By working with people at all levels - from the top to the bottom - about their perceived health and safety issues, David uses 'health and safety' as the "window to your organisation" and can pinpoint other opportunities to improve overall organisation functioning. This process works across Australia and around the world - in NZ, USA, Canada, Brazil, Europe - and now China.
Dr McIvor is designer and principal presenter of both OSHA's extensive range of OHS-risk management training courses, including several government- accredited courses throughout Australia. He is the co-designer of The Ergotape, a tape measure containing over 50 separate ergonomic measurements and criteria.
David is committed and passionate about helping people at all levels in an organisation, not only improve the standards of their working conditions, but moreover making their organisation more 'fun' to be part of.
