The Queensland Branch of the Safety Institute of Australia has over 900 members spread over a large geographical area, from Cape York to the NSW Border, and from the Coast to the border of Northern Territory. The Branch plans and coordinates the majority of events through a serious of volunteer regional representatives.  Historically we have had strong sub-Branch networks operating up and down the coastal seaboard from Cairns to the Gold Coast and into Toowoomba and currently we have sub-Branch networks operating in Townsville, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. Our signature annual event is our Visions Conference.

People who want to be a part of our core networks are always welcome, and we are always looking to help our regional members strengthen their connections. If you have an interest in helping to establish a network within a major regional area please do not hesitate to contact the Branch Chair.

The QLD Commitee Members are: Bryce McLaren (Branch Chair), Brett Jones (Deputy Branch Chair), David Whitefield, David Randall, Jo Kitney, Malcolm Burgin, Roxanne Egeskov and Carolyne Gentle.
