Each seminar will be approximately one hour in duration, consisting of 40-45 minutes of presentation and 15-20 minutes of questions. Details of the sessions can be found here. Separately, Safe Work Australia has started promoting October as National Safe Work Month, releasing new material for businesses to customise and use in their workplace to promote health and safety during October.
