Invitation to Attend
Dear industry colleagues,
On behalf of the Conference Committee, it is my honour to invite you to attend the 32nd Annual Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference at The Star Gold Coast from Sunday 23 August to Wednesday 26 August 2020.
Each year this Conference provides us with a unique opportunity to reflect, as an industry, on the current safety environment in Queensland and to hear about some of the best practice examples of individuals and companies improving safety.
The theme of the 2020 Conference is Together we Collaborate, Innovate and Educate, as it is only through openly sharing information and working together that we can address some of the critical safety challenges facing our industry and make sure every worker goes home safely, every day.
It is often said that those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it, and I know that none of us wants to again experience a year as tragic as 2019. At this year’s conference, we will have a renewed focus on sharing and collaboration to ensure we do not forget the lessons of our past as we innovate and move forward towards a safer future.
To lead our discussions, a high-quality Conference program has once again been developed. A wide range of presenters will share their experiences and insights into the important issues impacting health and safety within our industry.
The Conference commences at lunchtime on Sunday and is followed by an official opening and keynote presentations. Over the next three days attendees will benefit from full sessions daily, with keynote presentations, concurrent sessions demonstrating best practice and Innovation and Health Award presentations. Extensive trade displays will also be available throughout the Conference, which concludes with the annual Conference Dinner and presentation of awards.
Our 2019 Conference was one of the largest ever held, with more than 860 attendees. It came at a critical time for our industry, as we committed to resetting our industry’s safety performance. But we still have further to go.
I invite you to be involved with the discussions and innovations that could deliver a step change in safety in the mining industry.
On behalf of the 2020 Conference Committee, I hope you will join us at what has become the leading safety forum for our industry.
2020 Conference Committee Chair
