Australia’s largest mine health and safety conference will be held on the Gold Coast in August this year, attracting up to 1000 industry delegates focussed on one thing – the health, safety and wellbeing of every worker in the mining sector.

The Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference will be held from August 21-24 and is expected to attract the largest cohort of delegates in the conference’s 32-year history.

QMIHSC 2022 Chair, and Chief Inspector of Coal Mines for Resources Safety and Health Queensland, Peter Newman said the conference is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, with delegates travelling from all corners to hear from world-leading safety experts.

“It has been overwhelming to see the response from industry to the conference this year, after the Covid-related postponement over the past two years,” Mr Newman said.

“The conference has attracted a wide range of world-class presenters, eager to share their expert knowledge and insights into critical health and safety issues and innovations in our industry,” Mr Newman said.

“We encourage all industry CEOs, senior leaders, mine workers and health and safety professionals working in Queensland’s resources sector to register for the conference, which offers a full program of topical sessions, case studies, workshops, award presentations, a gala dinner and so much more.”

“This year’s theme – ‘Together we Collaborate, Innovate and Educate’ is as important today as it ever was. All three of these goals are vital if we are to share, learn from past experiences and innovate to a future of zero serious harm.”

“The conference is a key event on the mining industry calendar bringing together unions, industry, regulators and government to work together to share ideas about new safety innovations and critical health techniques in the pursuit of an industry with zero serious harm.”
