Event Details

#1 People and Culture

People and culture are a strong driver of safety improvement. Our keynote speakers focused on how CEOs need to initiate and own changes in safety attitudes. The major theme was what drives culture change and how everyone in the workplace can benefit from learning from incidents in a informative and positive way.

#2 Technologies and Systems

At the same time as software is making safety administration easier, machinery technologies are changing fast at the leading edge of primary and extraction industries. Our focus was to bring the leaders with relevant experience In exciting new technologies can help us in forestry. Technologies from within (think Waratah’s developments on chainshot) and autonomous control from outside (think Rio Tinto’s Mine of the Future at Pilbara) was showcased. Many of these innovations, which have already been successfully adopted by the industry, were highlighted throughout the event.
