Greg's Training Experience
Initially trained in physical education (including biomechanics, motor learning and work physiology) Greg has a Masters degree in Human Movement Science and over 30 years’ experience at the rehabilitation clinical “coalface.
Over the past 15 years Greg has presented literally hundreds of training sessions but still maintains a case load of rehabilitation and return to work clients referred from WorkCover or Insurers.
With his vast subject knowledge engaging style and practical approach Gregs workshops and presentations ALWAYS get rave reviews and there are three words consistent in feedback:
"Safe and effective movement can and indeed must be taught AND learned.
- Learning requires Retention
- Retention requires Attention
- Attention requires Engagement
To get attention and engagement a trainer needs to have the credibility, and as someone who has very obviously “been round the block”, I gain credibility with relative ease particularly with the older workers who as we know “have to believe it before they behave it” - Greg Lambert-Smith

Health and Safety Training: Is it KISSable? (2 hours)
Most people regard Health and Safety as a complicated quagmire of legislative mumble jumble too difficult to understand and seemingly impossible to get right. Some even regard it as an unnecessary scheme to place workers in “cotton wool”.
Those of us who work at the business end of managing injury know that none of this is true and most injury is avoidable if workers and employers gave attention to just a few main principals behind the legislation.
This workshop sets out to simplify things and unravel the WHS “birdnest” so workers actually understand how and why the specific WHS factors exist and more importantly actually “buy in” to it and become pro active safety “champions”.
The training sets out to instil or improve the individual’s ability to foresee potential injury, and the tools to confidently intercept and mitigate the risks.
One client wrote:
"By the clarity of his thinking and his overall grasp of the subject, Greg has the capacity to create a sense of confidence in other staff who are supporting the systems. I found this to be very helpful in getting “action” on things that had been avoided.
I found that Greg had the ability to document procedures in a practical way – bearing in mind the end user (whatever their education of background)."
