The SIA National Health and Safety Conference will be held from 22-23 May 2019 at the International Convention Centre Sydney.

As part of the #SAFETYSCAPE Convention, the conference will bring together stakeholders across the health and safety profession to discuss some of the challenges currently faced by WHS professionals and practitioners and explore the impacts these have on the OHS profession, as well as new ideas, innovation, research and leadership.

The Conference is a two day program bookended by a series of partnered and co-presented events which include the Conference Dinner and a CEO Breakfast.


The SIA’s Program Committee invites OHS professionals, academics and researchers in the field of Health & Safety to submit a Speaker Expression of Interest to present at the 2019 SIA National Health & Safety Conference.

The two day conference will be held on 22-23 May 2019 at the Sydney International Convention Centre as part of the #SafetyScape convention.

In addressing the impacts on health & safety practise, we ask you to also consider the broader range of WHS areas of application (i.e.: Incident Investigations, Contractor Management, Compliance & Regulation, Health & Wellbeing etc)
