OzHelp Welcomes Carolyn Parish to the Team

The OzHelp Foundation (OzHelp) is delighted to announce the appointment of Carolyn Parish as the new Director of Workplace Wellbeing – Planning and Advisory Services.

Carolyn will collaborate closely with businesses to identify the services they require to develop mentally friendly and psychologically safe workplace environments.

Carolyn joins the team with an extensive career in driving improvements in the health and wellbeing sector, particularly in mining. Her experience includes 10 years working for Rio Tinto, Yancoal, and Glencore in Occupational Health and the last 2 years at Ampcontrol as their Health and Wellbeing Specialist.

Carolyn holds qualifications in Occupational Health & Safety, Mental Health Intervention, Incident Investigation, and is a member of the Australian Institute of Health & Safety. She is also a current finalist in the 2020 Hunter Safety Awards for WHS Champion of the Year and Best Health & Wellbeing Program.

Her extensive 17-year career within male-dominated high-risk industries has seen her become a leader in contributing to the increasing importance and focus of workplace wellbeing.

Reflecting on her experience she notes “for a person experiencing a tough time, sometimes work is the best place for them to be – it’s where their friends are, and for some, it may be the only place that they can access much-needed support.”

“I am greatly looking forward to the opportunity to help more businesses develop effective programs to support their workforce.”

OzHelp Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Darren Black welcomes Caroline to the team.

“Carolyn brings great experience and passion to the role. She is highly qualified to directly support our Industry partners and extend OzHelp’s services and support to high-risk and hard-to-reach workforces. We are thrilled to have her on board.”
