The 2016 ALC Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit will be held on 17-18 August 2016 at Melbourne Park Function Centre.
With the theme Chain of Responsibility is all about Safety, the Summit will feature policy discussions and seminars/workshops. The Summit is expected to attract more than 300 industry representatives from all parts of the supply chain, including customers, suppliers and logistics providers.
The Summit is integral to ALC’s commitment to raising awareness about Chain of Responsibility (CoR), which impacts on all parts of the supply chain, as well as advising industry participants on some practical steps they can take to ensure high levels of safety and compliance.
The Summit will consider how supply chains and networks can be champions of work health and safety by adopting practices which then influence other supply chain members’ perceptions, expectations and actions.
A key focus will be the significant extension to CoR that is to be considered by governments during 2016, which proposes extending the legal obligations and liabilities of executive officers / directors.
In particular, the reforms proposing a new ‘primary duty of care’ into the current Chain of Responsibility are similar in nature to those contained in workplace health and safety legislation.
The successful 2015 Summit brought together more than 300 industry representatives to benchmark, share best practice, and to identify gaps where improvements are needed.
Registrations for the ALC Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit will open very soon. Save the date now for this must-attend event!
Hon Luke Donnellan MP, Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Minister for Ports, will open the Summit on 17 August.
