MINEARC ATTENDS MINESAFE INTERNATIONAL 2017: THE RESOURCE INDUSTRY HEALTH & SAFETY CONFERENCE


5th July 2017

Tom Boylson, Australian Mining Business Development Manager, and Ronan Collins, Product Development and Innovation, attended the inaugural ‘Minesafe International 2017: The Resource Industry Health & Safety Conference’ at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, May 1-2.

The event was hosted by the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) – Minerals Institute, in conjunction with The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia (CME) and the Government of Western Australia’s Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP).

The premier conference for resource industry professionals responsible for health and safety in the workplace was largely an academic event, driven by industry specific research papers. There was a unified objective present on occupational health and safety looking forward, with the re-emergence of old hazards and issues provoking new thought on how changes are being implemented.

Fundamental trends and topics of the conference were gas and dust monitoring, Pneumoconiosis (Black Lung Disease), Silicosis, and nano-diesel particulate, mental wellbeing and mindfulness in safety, and low-risk high-consequence events. There was also a number of safety related products on show.

MineARC look forward to continuing to provide health and safety developments and innovations to the resources industry to improve safety and efficiency for all workers.
