WELCOME National Safety is produced for the NSCA Foundation by Westwick-Farrow Media.

We are already nearly a quarter of the way through 2018! I hope all of our readers, members and subscribers are enjoying a safe year so far and thank you for your continued interest in National Safety. The unprecedented interest in the Brisbane Incident Investigation Breakfast Forum and registrations for the Melbourne Contractor Management Breakfast Forum in March shows that two topics that we’ve run countless times still attract a great deal of discussion and interest. It has been wonderful to welcome so many guests to these functions. Members who cannot attend but are keen to listen to the audio recordings can access them through the member portal or by contacting the NSCA Foundation team. Whilst the extended 20% discount from selective distance-learning courses expires at the end of March, the regular member discount continues to apply across all public courses at NSCA or Fire & Safety Australia. We encourage anyone with an interest in enrolling, seeking further information or accessing their discount code to contact the membership team. Nominations open for the 2018 National Safety Awards of Excellence within the next few weeks. I encourage those interested in nominating their organisation or safety hero to visit the awards website and review the categories on offer or read some of the stories and photos from the 2017 awards.
