Presented by Safety in Action
With the three conferences running in adjacent rooms, you will be able to switch sessions and plan a track to suit your requirements.
The Safety in Action Conference is a two-day, high profile conference for Safety leaders. As the premier conference of the year, the Safety in Action Conference brings together Safety leaders in the health and safety profession, to encourage Australia-wide learning and networking across the two days. Over 700 delegates have attended the conference in the last two years to hear from regulators, thought-leaders and International keynotes who are making a difference in safety culture.
This year’s program will hear from industry leaders identifying strategies to enhance the mental and physical wellbeing and productivity of the Australian workforce. Encouragingly, we are seeing a shift away from piece-meal solutions to more integrated, holistic approaches. This conference will shine a light on the states, companies and organisations leading the way. Hear and learn about stories, strategies, measurable indicators, and policy updates on a range of issues; from better understanding and responding to PTSD, to chronic stress management, from promoting healthier lifestyles to building employee engagement.
Employees have the right to, and employers the obligation the duty to provide, a timely and safe return to work, whether it be following a physical or psychological injury. This year’s program will explore best practice strategies that support the process and management of rehabilitation. It will also highlight preventative approaches and programs, as well as how to better navigate the Workers Compensation process.
