SA Safety Seminar Series OHS 70 years on

Thursday 14 July 2016 to Friday 16 September 2016
Seminar / Conference
West Adelaide Football Club Function Room 57 Milner Road, Richmond

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 three afternoon seminars based on the topic areas presented in 1946 – but with a 2016 relevance.

SIA Members per seminar            $40 + GST
SIA Members 3 Seminars            $100 + GST
Non-Members per seminar           $70 + GST
Non-Members 3 Seminars           $180 + GST
