Alcohol and Other Drugs Forum a Success

The Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner (OFSC) facilitated a successful Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Forum in Melbourne on 8 April 2009, with over 100 people attending the booked out event.

People attending the forum included industry OHS managers, workplace safety regulators and representatives from unions and industry associations.

The AOD Forum was part of the OFSC’s ongoing commitment to improving OHS in the building and construction industry. It provided an opportunity for participants to hear from a broad range of speakers, covering both academic perspectives and practical experiences.

The event was also a valuable networking platform, allowing participants to share their views and highlight the key AOD issues impacting on their workplace. Feedback on the forum has been of a very positive nature.

The OFSC is preparing an issues paper which will summarise the main themes raised during the day. The issues paper and all forum presentations will be made available on this site in the near future.
