Safer By Sharing Conference Presentations

To help achieve Zero Harm, all employees and contractors need to be involved in sharing knowledge and experience as a contributor to developing and maintaining personal competence.

In addition to brokering 1-2-1 expert mentoring, MPA addresses a wide variety of operational audiences through the series of 'Safer by Sharing' mini seminars. These involve expert speakers addressing prioritised topics to small audiences but with major audience participation. See the dates and venues for the 2018 seminars below.
