Forum 2 Archive 15/9/14, Perth

Over 130 road transport industry participants met for the 2nd Transafe WA Road Transport Industry Safety Forum on Monday 15 September 2014.

“I would like to congratulate all the organisers for providing an excellent program which is free! Great!”

“Thanks for a great day, I thoroughly enjoyed it and have been singing the event’s praises to all I have encountered since Monday. The standard of speakers, topics etc were all very relevant and well covered, the day in general was to be highly commended.”

“The Transafe WA Forum was another great opportunity to hear from industry leaders about a range of topics that have a potential to affect our organisation. The quality of presenters on the day was truly excellent… and the topics I initially thought had the least relevance to my organisation actually had the most.”

“I think the resources that Jerome from NRSPP presented are pure gold for transport operators, as they show credible companies making significant improvements, and the pathways by which they achieved their safety targets. The Transafe WA Board and Committee should be heartily congratulated on their planning and the choice of topics.”

“Great forum – keep the momentum up.”
