Conference Program

Minesafe International 2017 is the premier conference for resource industry professionals that are responsible for health and safety in the workplace. Attend the conference to learn about the latest health and safety developments and innovations, obtain practical new tools and gain insights that can be used to make the resources industry safer for all workers.

While significant advances have been made in health and safety in the resources sector in recent years, issues such as the mental wellbeing of FIFO workers, coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (black lung), legislation and corporate responsibility continue to present significant challenges. Minesafe International 2017 will address these issues, as well as many others, by offering a strong technical program exploring the latest health and safety developments in the resources industry and presenting an impressive line-up of internationally renowned keynote speakers.

Minesafe International 2017 aims to ensure that health and safety remains at the forefront of thinking in the resources industry. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for health and safety professionals, site managers, researchers, regulators, legislators, consultants, engineers and other resources industry professionals to meet with their peers, discuss the latest developments in the sector and learn about new innovations that could lead to important health and safety improvements in the workplace.

Minesafe International 2017 is organised by the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy in conjunction with the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia and the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum and will be at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 1–2 May 2017.
