HAVE YOUR SAY TO PROGRESS HEALTH AND SAFETY
The 30th Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference will be held at The Star Gold Coast.
The conference will take place from Sunday, 19 August through to the Conference Dinner and Award
presentations on Wednesday, 22 August.
As one of the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, the conference provides the industry with
the opportunity to exchange information, network and foster proactive health and safety management
techniques relevant to the Queensland mining industry.
Up to 700 delegates across the country are expected to attend the four-day conference themed
‘Recognising Opportunities Together’.
Those wishing to take an active role in the conference are encouraged to consider presenting a paper
during one of the concurrent sessions or to enter the renowned Innovation and Health Program Awards.
Conference chair, Russell Albury, said everyone from the resources and related industries is invited to
submit a paper abstract to be considered for presentation in one of the concurrent sessions.
“The committee can’t express how integral these paper abstracts are to improve health and safety
management in the Queensland mining industry,” Russell said.
“We encourage those in the industry to make a positive impact on their industry by sharing their
knowledge and expertise with their wider community at the conference.”
“No topics are off limits and we value the unique insights each of you shares as this is a
fundamental element to helping our industry evolve best practice.”
Entrants will be acknowledged in the conference’s award programs around ingenuity and advances in
systems technology and processes, as well as the practical solutions to personal and occupational health
