Acting as a National OHS Manager of national organisations with multiple sites in all sites (and overseas) he has a wealth of knowledge not only of the health industry but of OHS, compensation and insurance arrangements applying in all Australian jurisdictions.
“Bill Fitzgerald has worked as a National OHS Manager reporting to me for 3.5 years in the past 4.5. I first knew him in his capacity as an OHS Manager in 2000. I believed him then to be one of the foremost OHS practitioners in Victoria and his level of expertise continued to improve. He is highly knowledgeable in all matters pertaining to OHS, including legislative compliance, injury prevention, workers compensation claims, insurance premiums and compensation schemes. He has been instrumental in stopping insurance premium blowouts and reducing premium rates as well as reforming safety system structures and developing networks of junior OHS practitioners. Unusually among OHS practitioners he is commercially savvy, drawing from a background in accounting, sales and tax. I have no hesitation in recommending him as knowledgeable, hard-working, honest and ethical in the dark art of OHS.”
