The North Queensland Injury Prevention and Return to Work Conference is back in Townsville next month and it’s not too late to register.
The conference brings together a diverse range of educators, allied health professionals, work health and safety and rehabilitation and return to work professionals. Delve deeply into return to work, injury prevention and safety during the one-and-a-half-day conference and take away practical ideas to use in your workplace.
This year we’re giving you the option to attend personally or as an online delegate, with full livestream coverage of the conference being offered. All physical delegate registrations include the option to attend the networking function on the evening of the first day.
The masterclasses scheduled for the afternoon of Thursday 25 March will focus on mental health, safe work design and return to work. The full day conference on Friday 26 March will feature keynote speakers Michael Crossland and Future Crunch, while our MC Jordana Borensztain brings the day to life.
