Kersty Christensen

Head of Work Health and Safety, Governance, Brisbane Airport Corporation 

Kersty Christensen is a passionate and committed health and safety professional who fell into the aviation industry after working in human resources and WHS in both the public and not-for-profit sectors. She is keenly interested in taking the leading-edge knowledge and research from the big brains in the world of academia and shaping them for practical application in an operating business environment.

In recent times, as the Head of WHS for Brisbane Airport Corporation, this has led to a re-invention of health and safety culture at the airport – a challenging and dynamic environment with many players to convince.
