What's on offer?

Networking forums

Every few months we hold networking forums throughout Tasmania. Find out more about forthcoming events here. Each one looks at a different industry, or a range of WHS & Wellbeing topics with business leaders as guest speakers. If you can't get to one, don't panic – you won't miss out! We live-stream, so you can watch in real-time. And we record them too, so you can watch when it suitsyou. Feel free to visit our past events area.

Are you looking to take the next step in your business, but not sure what to do? Join us on a site visit, to see how other workplaces manage their systems and solve their WHS issues.

Sounds great! How do I find out more?
