Our company has a wide range of demonstrations in meeting social objectives. These include:
David Caple has been on the Executive Committee of the International Ergonomics Association 2003 to 2012. During this time, he has been the President and Chair of various committees. This involves a voluntary contribution up to 20 hours per week. Most of these trips are self funded. David continues to assist the IEA Executive on an annual basis.
David was one of two independents appointed by the Minister for WorkCover to represent the OHS industry on the Government’s OH & S Advisory Committee. This voluntary role involves over viewing the programs undertaken by the Government and to liaise with the employer associations, unions and government advisors.
David has also been the independent member of the judging panel for the OH & S Annual Awards in Victoria. He was a judge on an annual basis from 2004 to 2012.
Supporting of Local Community and Charities
David has often been asked to provide pro bono services or minimal costs services to charitable organisations. These projects may take the form of small consultancies, briefings and training programs, or guest speaking at their functions. Much of this work has involved liaison through the Uniting Church and affiliated groups with the Catholic Church.
David has been an Adjunct Professor at Latrobe University since 2004. This involves a small amount of lecturing at the University, and also mentoring students in relation to their studies and work opportunities. This includes hosting the students on work experience programs and involving them in project work to gain knowledge of the work undertaken, particularly in the area of ergonomics.
Our company has also hosted two English researchers in ergonomics for periods up to 3 months at a time. These are university staff on sabbatical leave. This also occurred with an academic from Latrobe University.
