Conference

The Australian Institute of Health & Safety (WA Branch) Perth Safety Symposium will be held on Friday the 27th November 2020.

The theme this year, SafetyGenX:M 2020 and beyond - Learning from the past to redefine WHS for our future workplaces! 

You will hear from a series of speakers who will share insights of 'critical events’ that are shaping the way within which every workplace OHS Practitioner and Professional will be operating now and into the future and the lessons learned to help navigate us through the next decade.

This is a unique format and as participants will be invited to participate in smaller workshop break-out (networking) groups to openly share lessons learned and collaborate in a larger collaboration to generate a wider community of learnings that can be taken back into your own workplace.

This sharing of insights without the usual limitation of business restraints in this common forum will maximise opportunities for cross company sharing.
