Deadline extended for mine safety conference
THE QUEENSLAND Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference will return to Jupiters on the Gold Coast from August 6–8.
Up to 650 delegates from across Queensland and Australia are expected to attend the conference, one of the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
This year’s theme is Sharing My Story – Understanding and Leading in Times of Adversity.
Conference chair Shane Apps is urging people who have worked in resources and related industries to submit a paper abstract to be considered for presentation at the conference.
“We encourage those in the industry to seriously consider sharing their knowledge and expertise with their colleagues at the conference,” he said.
“There are no boundaries to where good ideas can come from and it’s through shared experience and insight that we evolve best practice.”
Organisers are also seeking entrants for the conference’s two awards programs: the Innovation Award, which rewards ingenuity in systems technology, and the Health Program Award, which salutes creative solutions to health problems.
The deadline for paper abstract submissions has been extended from March 19 to March 31 due to high demand.
