Australia’s largest mining safety conference is happening next week


The Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference (QMIHSC) begins this Sunday, with over 1000 industry delegates set to converge on the Gold Coast.

The focus of QMIHSC is simple: ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of every worker in the mining sector.

The four-day conference – running from August 20 to 23 – provides the industry with the opportunity to exchange information, network and foster proactive health and safety management techniques.

“The health and safety of resources workers always has been, and always will be, a core value in the mining sector and is an area in which we will never stop trying to find improvements,” QMIHSC 2023 chair Larnie Mackay said.

“The theme of the 33rd QMIHSC is ‘inside looking out’ and will feature expert speakers and plenary sessions that put a spotlight on workers’ safety and on creating inclusive and welcoming workplaces.

“We encourage all industry CEOs (chief executive officers), senior leaders, mine workers and health and safety professionals working in Queensland’s resources sector to register for the conference, which also includes award presentations, a gala dinner and so much more.

“The conference is a key event on the mining industry calendar, bringing together mine workers, support services, suppliers, unions, industry regulators, and government to work together to share ideas about new safety innovations and critical health techniques in the pursuit of our goal of an industry with zero serious harm.”

The conference, which is organised by representatives from the Queensland Resources Council, can be attended both online and in-person.
