      The Association is a multidisciplinary group of healthcare and OHS professions aimed at sharing ideas and prompting continuous improvement in the systems, training, equipment and assistive devices available to safely move and handle people in the health and community services environments. The theme of the 2018 Conference continues to build on these areas and incorporates three pillars:
      • Predictions
      • People
      • Preventions
      For ideas / information on the 3 P’s refer to

      The Association would also like to extend the abstract call to incorporate the full range of the Health and wellbeing programs in hospitals, schools, community, Emergency services, aviation, funeral and other organisations involved in working with people and materials. This conference wishes to widen the scope of workplace health and safety in a holistic approach to injury prevention, and not only that which relates to people handling as has been the flavour of the past. Many of us work in multidisciplinary roles of MSD and WHS prevention, hence a wider viewpoint is paramount.

      The conference planning committee invite you to submit abstracts for either an oral presentation, workshop or new inventor, innovations.

      Oral Presentations: Papers will be allocated a total of 20 minutes’ presentation time. This will include 15 minutes for the presentation and five minutes for questions. Those abstracts not selected for paper presentation may be considered for a poster presentation or display space.

      Workshops: Workshop presenters are asked to indicate the length of time they will require presenting their workshop, anywhere from one hour to four hours can be facilitated.

      New inventors: As this was such a success in Brisbane we will be calling for new inventors again. The conference committee are looking for innovations and improvements in equipment and assistive devices released to the Australian market since the last conference. Vendors will be allocated a total of 5 minutes’ presentation time, followed by 5 minutes of panel questions. Submissions with the top initiatives will be invited to present at the conference.
