LiftEx Gold Coast speaker sessions feature Queensland Government

LEEA is pleased to announce that the Queensland Government's Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water will present a speaking session on Women in Manufacturing at LEEA’s LiftEx Gold Coast event on 12-13 September. Registration is now open and to attend this session for free, secure your place now.

The Manufacturing Industry is experiencing substantial growth in what is arguably one of the tightest labour markets in its history. This is leading to manufacturers across Queensland to diversify their workforce.

The Queensland Government is committed to arming local manufacturers with the tools, skills, and funding to ensure they can diversify their workforce to remain competitive and become market leaders.  At LiftEx Gold Coast, the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water will present a free-to-attend session for manufacturers, delivering the Women in Manufacturing Diversity, Equity & inclusion Toolkit, which will guide them to reimagine the workforce, rethink recruitment practices and programmes and give greater value to diversity and inclusivity in the workplace.

LiftEx Gold Coast is the much-anticipated two-day exhibition and conference hosted by the LEEA, which will bring together leading lifting and height safety equipment suppliers with end-users who are engaged in operating, inspecting, and testing lifting equipment in manufacturing and other key sectors. 

Visitors will have the opportunity to view the latest lifting equipment solutions for manufacturing in the exhibition, as well as hearing case studies and insights into the advancements and best practices to boost safety and efficiency in the speaker programme.

Access to all speaker sessions is complimentary, and the programme will include:

  • Vertical-market case studies presenting examples of real-world challenges in the mining, construction, renewables and oil & gas sectors, offering attendees solutions and actionable takeaways.
  • Technical updates, including standards development and challenges that can be addressed during their development
  • Professional development training workshops offered by Tower Crane Training  (LEEA’s Licensed Training Centre) for pre-use inspection of lifting equipment. Valued at over $600.
  • A session on LEEA’s Military Transition Scheme will detail how LEEA is connecting skilled and experienced individuals transitioning from the armed forces into civilian life and potential employment. 
  • An appearance by Beaconsfield Mining Survivor Brant Webb, who will talk about how his experience has given him a unique perspective on safety, resilience, and the human capacity to endure. His story is a stark reminder of the importance of safety protocols and procedures in high-risk environments.
