OFSC Roadshows an Ongoing Success

The OFSC Roadshows continue to be a great success with both accredited and unaccredited companies. Since the first event in Sydney, Roadshows have taken place in Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane, with the latter event proving so popular that a second day was required to accommodate everyone that wanted to attend.

The Roadshows were held at Master Builders Queensland in Brisbane on 16 and 17, the Building Leadership Simulation Centre in Melbourne on 24 June, and at Master Builders ACT in Canberra on 29 June. Nearly 200 people attended the Roadshows across the three cities.

The Federal Safety Commissioner Alan Edwards thanked the Master Builders Association and the Civil Contractors Federation for their assistance in promoting the OFSC Roadshows, saying “I am very appreciative that the various Master Builders Associations and the Civil Contractors Federations agreed to partner with my Office on the Roadshow project, and would like to thank their representatives for all their help in making the roadshows such a success. Talking with our stakeholders, helping them gain a deeper understanding of the Scheme and receiving their feedback in turn is extremely important to us.”

The OFSC Roadshow is made up of a keynote address by Commissioner Edwards, followed by workshops for both accredited companies and companies considering accreditation. The events have provided plenty of valuable feedback, which will be incorporated into improving OFSC guidance materials and will be compiled into an FAQ to be published on fsc.gov.au.
