These two articles are examples of the application of Generative Techniques in innovative projects to help realise Opportunity Risks resulting in acceptable outcomes. University of Woolongong Researchers from the University of Wollongong (UOW)’s Translational Research Initiative for Cell Engineering and Printing (TRICEP), ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science and UOW’s Makerspace worked together to design a face shield to protect medical workers. “We are looking at our capacity to do some of these more sophisticated things should that need arise ... It has been amazing how people have come together so quickly. That spirit of collaboration across the health service and university is really enabling us to move forward very quickly.” Ford Australia In a media statement, the boss of Ford Australia, Kay Hart, said: “We said from the beginning of COVID-19 that any way we could help, we would help. Producing face shields is certainly something new for us, but our innovation team and engineers were able to test a number of different designs in hospitals. With their input we have been able to get the face shield right for the people who will be wearing them.” Mr Mineo told CarAdvice: “It’s great to see so many of us back together again … it’s great to work with people you trust and who know production processes and who you know will do it right,” “Everyone is just so proud of what they’re doing, and so happy to be here.” https://www.caradvice.com.au/846416/ford-australia-donates-up-to-100000-medical-face-shields-for-covid-19/ "We really are all in this together – which is why Ford Australia is producing and will be donating up to 100,000 face shields for frontline healthcare workers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve been working with the Victorian Government to develop a prototype face shield and have refined the design of the shields following input from medical professionals across hospitals in Melbourne. We’re now ramping up production and will be distributing the face shields to medical facilities. We will also continue to work with the Government to help address any ongoing supply needs resulting from the global shortage of Personal Protective Equipment." https://www.linkedin.com/company/ford-australia/?miniCompanyUrn=urn%3Ali%3Afs_miniCompany%3A30673559 Australian engineers are 3D printing protective equipment for hospital workers - Create.pdf Ford Australia donates up to 100,000 medical face shields for COVID-19 | CarAdvice.pdf
Introduction While many risk engineering and management principals (such as those on the general principles page) are applicable across a broad range of industries, there are some principles, tools and practices which are specific to particular industries or sectors.
