Comcare regularly holds events and forums to provide opportunities for organisations to share expertise and drive best practice in the sector.
Our events aim to educate, enhance and challenge Australian organisations to achieve their workplace safety, compensation and rehabilitation objectives. They also offer participants the opportunity to network with industry peers and take part in various discussions and activities.
Some of our upcoming events are:
Join us at the 2022 Comcare National Conference to be held on 7 and 8 June 2022 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra. It has been four years since our last conference – and we’re excited it is back, live and in-person – in a COVID-safe way of course.
The Transport Network Forum provides an opportunity for Comcare and the transport and logistics industry to:
- discuss their challenges to manage industry specific work health and safety risks and hazards
- hear from industry experts and peers
- talk through initiatives to help manage and prevent injury of workers.
