Hello all and welcome to another week of Round-up. A point of focus for me in the coming weeks will be the 20th Anniversary "Visions" Occupational Health and Safety Conference. This conference will run from 29-31 August 2012, with a preceding welcome function for delegates on the evening of 28 August.
This conference presents a fantastic opportunity for members to hear from prominent keynote speakers such as Derrick McManus, Darren Flanagan and MikeWalsh
The welcome function on the Tuesday night (28 August) promises to be a lot of fun and provides a great opportunity to both catch up with familiar faces and meet new colleagues in the world of Work Health and Safety.
Of course all these fabulous events would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, so I would like to acknowledge our main sponsors who are:
- Shelly Dale OHS Services;
- Australian Safety and Learning Systems (ASLS);
- NCS International;
- Baseline Training Consulting – Workplace Health and Safety Specialists; and
- MVM Legal
Attending the conference provides a fabulous networking opportunity and attendance at the conference counts towards Continuing Professional Development points required to maintain SIA grades of Chartered Professional Member and above. Of course members of the SIA are offered discounted rates.

I will be personally opening the conference on the Wednesday morning (29 August), and I encourage all members, especially those who I have not yet had the opportunity to meet, to come up and say hello. I hope to see you there.
