Complimentary student registrations for QMIHS Conference

The Queensland Mining Industry Safety and Health Conference Committee is pleased to extend the offer to a limited number of students studying mining and related disciplines to attend this year’s Conference at The Star Gold Coast.

A complimentary registration is being offered to students to attend the Conference on Tuesday 20 August. For those who are not able to make their own way from Brisbane, a complimentary coach service will collect students from The University of Queensland (St Lucia Campus) at the Sir James Foots Building 47A at 9.30am and depart The Star Gold Coast around 8:00pm.

During the course of the day, students will be able to join in the Concurrent Session presentations being delivered by industry experts. The day will culminate with the Student Forum at 4.45pm, which provides students with the opportunity to engage in an informal Q&A session with senior members of industry from the private, union, public and regulatory sectors. The Forum will enable students to raise health, safety and social licence to operate matters and hear from industry on how these challenges are being met.

You will also be invited to attend the ‘Happy Hour’ to be held among the trade displays between 6.00pm and 7.00pm, where beverages and light refreshments will be served.

Visit the QMISHC website to find out more and view the conference program.
