August 2016 marks the 70th Anniversary of the FIRST ever Australian Safety Conference, which was held here in Adelaide.
In 1946 there were no workplace safety laws as we know them today, there were limited Australian Standards to provide direction and guidance and a safety advisor/coordinator/manager was unheard of. The 1946 conference was a “call to arms” to address the rising toll of safety-related injuries and fatalities. How far have we really progressed in 70 years?
Are we still concerned about the same issues? Come along and find out. The Safety Institute of Australia (SA Branch) is proud to present a series of 3 afternoon seminars based on the topic areas presented in 1946 – but with a 2016 relevance.
