Safety Conference following ENTECH

The inaugural AESRG Conference follows the 2018 Entech Roadshow in February and March across Australia. AESRG is an industry backed alliance of committed members who put show safety first. The conference is open to members and non members.

The conferences will be held in each city the day following the Roadshow.  That way if you are travelling to visit the Entech Roadshow, now you can add the bonus of discussing Health and Safety with industry peers!  You will be issued an Attendance Certificate after the event for you to demonstrate your commitment to workplace safety.

The format is very much based on an interactive day, it won’t be people talking to you for 8 hours.  There will be 4 topics that are relevant to our industry, presented by specialists in the field based on 45 minutes presentation and a 45 minute workshop / Q&A / brainstorm to put the information in practice.  The focus for the day is to facilitate dialogue, not only during the sessions but also during the morning and afternoon tea breaks and the working lunch (all provided as part of the registration).  Information and networking in an industry forum is the theme of the day.

Conference convener and chair is Roderick van Gelder.
