  • 23. 3rd<br />
  • 24. And!<br />
  • 25. At the <br />centre<br />of the workshop<br />were …<br />
  • 26. rigorous<br />3<br />pieces of Research<br />
  • 27. Let’s look at a snapshot of all<br />3<br />
  • 28. 1 <br />Safe Behaviour & Decision Making<br />Project Leader: Mary Omodei<br />Email: m.omodei@latrobe.edu.au<br />
  • 29. Understanding this …<br />
  • 30. Fire Behavior<br />
  • 31. Fire Behavior<br />… is essential to effective<br />bushfire fighting<br />
  • 32. And!<br />
  • 33. Understanding this …<br />
  • 34. Human Behavior<br />
  • 35. … is critical to understand how human behaviours influence safety outcomes<br />Human Behavior<br />
  • 36. We allknowthis…<br />
  • 37. The FireTriangle<br />Air<br />Heat<br />Fuel<br />
  • 38. Now we all need to understandthis!<br />
  • 39. aHuman Factors Fire Triangle<br />Thinking<br />Relating<br />Co-ordinating<br />
  • 40. aHuman Factors Fire Triangle<br />“these factors influence <br />safety on the fireground”<br />3<br />Thinking<br />Relating<br />Co-ordinating<br />
  • 41. One of the key lessons…<br />
  • 42. We are good at managing the fire, but not good at managing ourselves!<br />
  • 43. Let’s build on this <br />key lesson and look at research topic<br />#2<br />
  • 44. 1 <br />Safe Behaviour & Decision Making<br />2<br />Firefighter Health & Safety<br />Dr Brad Aisbett<br />Lecturer Deakin University<br />brad.aisbett@deakin.edu.au<br />
  • 45. “Cutting edge science based on real fireground work…helping fire agencies preserve the health and safety of their personnel” <br />
  • 46. This research puts<br />things under the <br />forensic microscope<br />4<br />
  • 47. Fatigue<br />Hydration<br />Firefighter Health & Safety<br />Fitness<br />Cardiovascular Health<br />
  • 48. Hydration<br />One of the key findings …<br /> across 3 studies<br />
  • 49. Firefighters not only leave the firegrounddehydrated<br />
  • 50. They actually arrivedehydrated!<br />
  • 51. Why is hydrationimportant?<br />
  • 52. dehydrationleads to...<br />
  • 53. ↑cardiac stress<br />
  • 54. decision <br />making<br />abilities<br />↓<br />↑cardiac stress<br />
  • 55. decision <br />making<br />abilities<br />↓<br />↑cardiac stress<br />risk of collapse<br />↑<br />
  • 56. decision <br />making<br />abilities<br />↓<br />↑cardiac stress<br />risk of collapse<br />↑<br />↓<br />productivity<br />
  • 57. A key message to communicate!<br />
  • 58. Manage your hydration <br />
  • 59. Fatigue<br />Hydration<br />And!beyond hydration<br />Cardiovascular Health<br />Fitness<br />
  • 60. Manage your fitness <br />
  • 61. Why?<br />
  • 62. These findingshave<br />BIG implications <br />way beyond health and safety!<br />
  • 63. Less fit firefighters get injuredmore often<br />Injuredfirefighters↓ workforce<br />Injured firefighters↑ compen$ation<br />
  • 64. is your workforceFit for duty??<br />
  • 65. And now to<br />research topic <br />#3 <br />
  • 66. Drum roll please…<br />
