In just over three weeks, the AIHS National Health & Safety Conference is returning to a face-to-face format for the first time since COVID-19 with its 2-day national conference in Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
This year’s event will focus on the theme: "The Adaptive Age: Innovative and Practical Approached to Health & Safety".
The conference program covers streams across leadership, systems, mental health, risk, culture, bullying & violence, crisis management, wellbeing and more.
"We have an outstanding list of national and international speakers, each examining different aspects of our key theme," said AIHS CEO David Clarke.
Having a face-to-face event was seen as extremely important, and Mr Clarke invited health and safety people to come out and support the event. "This is our chance to step out from behind our computer screens, meet colleagues and peers to talk health and safety," he said. "The profession has expressed a desire to step back into face-to-face experiences, and the national conference is the first of a number of upcoming events we are going to be offering throughout the rest of the year."
The two-day conference also includes an emerging leaders breakfast, College of Fellows lunch, as well as reception and drinks at the end of day one, and access to the co-located Workplace Health and Safety Show.
