It has been four years since our last Comcare National Conference – and we’re excited it is back, live and in-person – in a COVID-safe way of course.

The conference theme Creating a safer workplace together combines the best of workplace health and safety knowledge and expertise in one place. So, get ready to network and reconnect with your WHS industry peers, colleagues, experts and stakeholders once again.

The two-day event will bring together more than 500 delegates to share best practice, hear the latest research, build valuable networks, and explore how to promote and enable safe and healthy work.
