Mine Electrical Safety Conference
June 3 - June 5
The Mine Electrical Safety Association (MESA) is celebrating the 30th year of the Mine Electrical Safety Conferences (MESC). The 2019 conference will be held from Monday 3 – Wednesday 5 June 2019 at the Pullman and Mercure Brisbane King George Square.
From humble beginnings at the first conference (which was held at Blackwater mine in central Queensland with just a handful of delegates), this event is now the premier Electrical Mining Safety Conference in Queensland and a must-attend event. The conference brings together government departments, consultants, suppliers and key industry decision makers within the electrical field to hear technical presentations on all matters relating to electrical safety within the mining industry.
The ever-popular trade exhibition, held in conjunction with the conference, provides benefits for delegates and for exhibitors. The exhibition continues to grow every year and, with 2019 being an anniversary year, it is sure to sell out.
About the Mine Electrical Safety Association
The formation of the Mine Electrical Safety Association (MESA) was the first of its kind in Queensland, being established well before the industry focus on safety. For close to 30 years, MESA has been an integral conduit between the working face of the industry and suppliers and government departments in identifying electrical safety problems and by consultation, provide information with a view to improving safety and productivity.
The showcase achievement of the association is the continued development of the annual conference and trade exhibition, which brings together government departments, consultants, suppliers and key industry decision makers within the electrical field to hear technical presentations on all matters relating to electrical safety within the mining industry.
MESA also has a focus on addressing issues in the industry including the safety of handheld meters for electrical testing, welding safety and maintaining the statutory electrical position within the legislation, not to mention publicising electrical incidents with recommendations for improvements. The latest is the publication of the “Working Safely with Electricity” by The Institute of Quarrying Australia with contributions by the Mine Electrical Safety Association.
MESA values safety greatly and is continuously looking to improve workplaces for those involved in the mining industry. We aim to identify electrical safety problems within the industry, and by consultation provide information with a view to improving safety and productivity.
