Source: Safe to Work


The OH&S Strategy Summit is one of the premier occupational health and safety events in Australia. Bringing together over 100 of industry's top OHS professionals from leading companies, the Summit is to be held at the Sheraton Mirage Resort on the Gold Coast, Queensland from 6 to 8 March, 2012, which is this week!

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, a work related injury survey indicated a 53 out of every 1000 workers had experience some kind of injury or illness in the workplace.

Australia is also ranked 7th for one of the fastest failing fatality rates among the best performing countries. The Australian workplace is always changing, which also includes the occupational health and safety conditions they create. These changing factors include new technologies and materials, the increasing number of younger and older workers and the workforce challenges encountered.

The OH&S Strategy Summit brings together industry's leading senior OHS professionals to cover a range of topics that are relevant to the day to day safety of industries and businesses, such as warehousing and logistics and supply chain. The Summit will also discuss future predictions, new legislations and new technologies within the country.

The OH&S Strategy Summit offers health and safety executives the opportunity to:

  • Interact with peers and exchange ideas
  • Share stories and assess real-life best practise, pitfalls and innovations
  • Be updated with technology advances
  • Discover alternative solutions to problems
  • Discuss and debate over relevant OH&S topics and challenges

The Summit will provide attendees with think tank sessions, panel discussions, keynotes, rountable discussions and workshops that cover some of the challenges many companies face, especially with new legislation.

The OH&S Strategy Summit is an exclusive event limited to the invited guests in Senior OHS positions only. However, the Summit also provides an opportunity for suppliers to sell their products direct to senior OHS professionals through a series of one-on-one business meetings.

The OH&S Strategy Summit is currently held at the Sheraton Mirage Resort in Gold Coast, Queensland and runs from Tuesday the 6th, to Thursday the 8th of March.
