Am I entitled to a refund if I paid to attend an event and now want to cancel?

Refunds will not be issued if you cancel less than seven days prior to the event.

If a cancellation and refund request is received more than seven days prior to the event, a refund for the registration amount only will be made in the same form that the original payment and to the original account that made the payment. Credit or bank fees separately billed by your banking institution will not be refunded.

If you are unable to attend an event you have registered for, you can transfer your registration to a substitute delegate. You should notify us of the change by emailing safeworkmonth@oir.qld.gov.au at least seven days before the event.

All requests for cancellation and/or refunds should be directed to safeworkmonth@oir.qld.gov.au.

Community events

I want to hold a workplace event, but I'm not sure how?

Our Safe Work Month event planning toolkit (PDF, 2073.65 KB) will guide you through planning and hosting a successful Safe Work Month event. (If you're stuck for ideas, check out the suggestions in the Toolkit, or take a look at some of the events held by workplaces throughout the state last year.)

How do I submit an event for the community events calendar?

Simply complete the online 'Register your event' form, following the steps outlined below, and tell us about your work health and safety event or activity.

Step 1

Register as an event organiser - tell us who you are, your organisation and industry, your contact details and your postal address.

Step 2

Complete your event details - the name of the event, where and when it will be held, what type of event it is, whether there is an entry fee and who can attend. You can specify the target audience and whether it is open to the public.

If you are hosting multiple events, you can either:

  • simply tell us how many events you're hosting across the state, and provide a general overview of all your events
  • provide complete details for each event.
Note: You can register your event with the location and date to be confirmed. Just put 'TBC' (i.e. to be confirmed) in the appropriate fields and then once confirmed, update your event details by clicking on the 'Update your event' link in your confirmation email. Alternatively, email the updated details to safeworkmonth@oir.qld.gov.au quoting your event ID reference number as it appears in your confirmation email.

Step 3

Read and agree to the terms and conditions and our privacy policy. Check the box of our services and programs that are of interest and/or apply to you.

When will my event appear online?

A confirmation email will be sent to your nominated email account notifying you whether your event application was successful. Please check the website in the coming weeks to see if your event has been added to the calendar. We reserve the right to publish only events that may be of interest to our readers.

How long should my event description be?

We reserve the right to edit event descriptions for length. The event description should be no longer than 1100 characters (approximately 250 words). Anything over this limit will not be published.

How can I edit/cancel my event after it has been submitted?

You can update or cancel your event calendar submission by clicking on the 'Update your event' link in your confirmation email. Any changes will be reflected on our website within 24 hours of your request being received.
