David Hurst BEnvSci, BSc(Hons)
OHS Consultant

My Honours year thesis explored the topic of social capital, the value of social networks, in community-based Environmental Management groups. This transformed my interest in management from a focus on the environment to people, and the important role we all in bringing about change. After my graduation, I secured a position with Noel Arnold and Associates as an asbestos hygienist which expanded my interest in the interactional impact between people and their workplace. As my understanding of Occupational Health and Safety grew, I sought broader OHS challenges and applied for the role of OHS Advisor at Monash. I have since been promoted to OHS consultant and continue to strive for innovative approaches toward OHS management.
