Dale Turner, Director, EMP Onsite

After completing a Bachelor of Health Sciences, Dale followed his interest in anatomy and physiology, commencing a degree in Physiotherapy. Upon graduation, he then went into private practice, enjoying working with injured workers and improving their return to work outcomes. Soon after this, Dale started his own private physio practice in 2006 with the goal of optimising the health and function of injured workers. His strong focus was empowering workers to take control and become active participants in their rehabilitation journey not ‘passive patients’. This desire led Dale to continue developing programs that supported and prevented musulo-skeletal injury and improved overall health. 


Ashleigh Hourigan, Exercise Scientist, EMP Onsite

Ashleigh Hourigan is an Accredited Exercise Scientist working with EMP Onsite. Graduating from UWA in 2016 with a Bachelor of Exercise Science, Ashleigh completed an honours thesis in Fundamental Movement Skills in early childhood and presented this research at the International Physical Literacy Conference in Toronto, Canada. Recognising that creating physical literacy and competency occurs across the lifespan and fit in well with promoting safe behaviour in OH&S, Ashleigh honed her skills up north in mining as a workplace health coach, back in Perth as a head fitness trainer for HBF, and now across various industries focusing on injury prevention with EMP Onsite.   

Sue Caswell, General Manager, The Drug Detection Agency

Sue’s career spans the application of her skills across daily newspapers, civil construction, commercial cleaning, early childhood education and she has even done stints as a wool handler and more recently as a personal assistant to the former owners of Roy Hill Station which enabled her to experience life on a cattle station in the Pilbara. In 2016 Sue bought into The Drug Detection Agency with her first franchise and, with a business partner has grown the enterprise throughout WA.
