With over 150 registrations for the Brisbane Breakfast Forum next week, and over 50 for the Masterclasses, it seems Incident Investigation remains a popular topic. As the stories in this Safe-T-Bulletin and previous issues will attest, incidents don’t just impact the individuals directly involved, but friends, family and colleagues alike. How can we reduce incidents happening in the first place? Perhaps by not becoming complacent, by remaining vigilant and by continually learning. A reminder that there are other functions in Melbourne and Sydney over the next few weeks. We also encourage those with training requirements to review the NSCA or FSA course calendars.
