Dead­line ex­tended for mine safety con­fer­ence

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

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.
