I had a good chat today with Jamie Burrage, CEO of NSCA Foundation. Readers of this blog may have gathered that we aren’t big fans of very many Safety Organisations. However, I was impressed by the vision Jamie has for the NSCA Foundation and I encourage you to check out their website and learn a little bit more about what they are doing: https://www.nscafoundation.org.au/. Their SAFETYconnect Conference is happening in Melbourne at the end of August (more details below)
I wasn’t aware that The NSCA Foundation is independent of the NSCA National Safety Council of Australia whom most of our Australian readers would be familiar with. I was involved with their 5 Star Safety Program some 30 years ago. The two organisations do have a formal reciprocal reciprocal relationship to provide discounted training for members and subscription services.
The NSCA Foundation is Australia’s leading safety community; a member based, non-profit organisation focused on improving workplace health and safety throughout Australia. They are the national voice of safety guiding industry towards safer and healthier workplaces. Through their substantial membership their vision is that Australian Workplaces are the safest in the world and protect their most important asset – people. They achieve this vision by inspiring Australian workplaces to the continuous pursuit of best practice in safety and to provide relevant and topical safety education, training and development.
As of 2019, the NSCA Foundation offers a membership program unprecedented in its long history. This membership program includes exclusive member resources, interactive events, the latest industry news and updates, access to a helpdesk, discounts for training services, subscription to Australia’s leading National Safety magazine and more. In addition to the membership program the NSCA Foundation continues to convene the prestigious annual National Safety Awards of Excellence, honouring individuals and organisations who champion safety innovation and best practice.
The NSCA Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission
