Event Date & Location


2018 has served up a wealth of content in both traditional and emerging risks but the dynamism does not stop there.  Innovation is reshaping likelihood and severity, creating opportunities for organisations to reduce and redefine risk within their operations, industries, and territories.  It can be too easy in exciting times to get swept away by waves of change, but the reality is that employee deaths, workplace illnesses, accidents and injuries remain a significant feature, despite the wealth of new technology and innovation available today.  In fact, some factors, such as mental health, are increasing significantly. 

Where does this leave risk and safety professionals today?
