Dr Brady is a leading forensic engineer commissioned by the Queensland Government to analyse why mine workers have died over the past 20 years. Dr Brady found the mining industry had not recognised it was in a fatality cycle – when incidents occurred the industry did not fundamentally change its approach safety, and so it experienced similar safety outcomes. Periods of no fatalities were simply part of the fatality cycle and not evidence the industry was becoming safer.

The petroleum industry is not so different from mining.  Are we confident we aren’t making the same mistakes?

Dr Brady will be joined by a panel of leading safety professionals from government and industry to explore this question and discuss the opportunities that exist to achieve better safety outcomes.
