OFFICE OF THE FEDERAL SAFETY COMMISSIONER NATIONAL ROADSHOW - Townsville 16 March, Cairns 17 March 2016

Following on from last year’s successful national roadshows in cities across Australia, the OFSC will be visiting Townsville and Cairns in March 2016.
 
What do the Roadshows Involve?
 
Each roadshow will feature a keynote presentation by Federal Safety Commissioner, Mr Alan Edwards, and an information session with the opportunity for questions and answers covering both the attainment and maintenance of accreditation under the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme. There will also be the opportunity for companies to meet with OFSC staff for one-on-one discussions (please note that due to the high level of interest these discussions will only be allocated 15 minutes each).
 
Attending companies will have the opportunity to discuss the recent changes to the Scheme, the revised audit criteria and guidance, and the accreditation process.
 
Who Should Attend?
 
Accredited companies and companies wanting to tender as head contractor for Commonwealth funded projects.
 
RSVPs for both Townsville and Cairns are required by COB Tuesday 8 March.
