Organisers of a major mining conference are calling for nominations to present papers.

The 30th Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference will be held at The Star Gold Coast  from August 19-22.

As one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, the conference provides the opportunity to exchange information, network and foster proactive health and safety management techniques relevant to the Queensland mining industry.

Up to 700 delegates are expected to attend the four-day conference themed ‘Recognising Opportunities Together’.

Those wishing to take an active role in the conference are encouraged to consider presenting a paper during one of the concurrent sessions or to enter the Innovation and Health Program Awards.

Paper Abstracts submissions are due Friday, March 30 and submission for the Innovation and Health Program Awards are due by Friday, May 18.

Conference chair, Russell Albury, said everyone from the resources and related industries is invited to submit a paper abstract to be considered for presentation in one of the concurrent sessions.

“The committee can’t express how integral these paper abstracts are to improve health and safety management in the Queensland mining industry,” Russell said.

“We encourage those in the industry to make a positive impact on their industry by sharing their knowledge and expertise with their wider community at the conference.

“No topics are off limits and we value the unique insights each of you shares as this is a fundamental element to helping our industry evolve best practice.”

Entrants will be acknowledged in the conference’s award programs around ingenuity and advances in systems technology and processes, as well as the practical solutions to personal and occupational health problems.
