Do you understand your liabilities for site safety related to hazards of trenches and excavations?

These common site necessities can pose health and safety risks to workers, site visitors, neighbours and passers-by, and can have tragic consequences when things go wrong including death or serious permanent injury.

These outcomes can be followed by regulator investigation, prosecution, loss of business, tarnished reputation and financial risk.


Learn from the regulator and industry professionals on how to minimise these risks, including:

    • Understanding WorkSafe requirements (what they are and why they are important)
    • What WorkSafe look for on-site
    • Interactions between client and contractors (including sub-contractors)
    • Case studies on what went right and what went wrong


    Itinerary:

      • 7:00 - Registration & Networking Breakfast
      • 7:30 - Seminar Commences
      • 9:00 - Seminar Conclusion & Catered Networking Session
