Right of entry is widely utilised by unions in the construction industry as a means of communicating with current and potential union members, and to investigate alleged safety and other contraventions. Master Builders SA expects an increase in right of entry activity on South Australian construction sites by CFMEU officials in 2018.

It is important for employers and site occupiers to know their rights before a right of entry occurs.

The seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of the right of entry provisions under both the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and the Work, Health and Safety Act 2012 (SA).

In addition to providing a summary of the law, the seminar will provide useful and practical tips for employers and site occupiers to manage rights of entry on site.
The seminar will also provide an insight from the industry regulator, the Australian Building and Construction Commission.

Don’t miss this opportunity to attend an important and topical IR seminar.

Renowned for her true gritt, indomitable spirit and passion for humanitarian work, this engaging, 
inspirational and refreshingly candid woman will astonish you, inspire you and leave you in stiches.

Turia was aged just 24, an ex-model, fitness junkie and successful mining engineer when she was caught in a freak firestorm while competing in a 100km ultramarathon. She was choppered out of the remote desert barely alive with burns to 64 percent of her body.  Surviving against overwhelming odds is the least of her achievements. Turia has gone on to thrive in the ultimate story of triumph over 

Her motto is ‘Never EVER give up’, which resonates with people from all walks of life.  Anyone, anywhere, who refuses to be limited by circumstance.  Turia is a true and profound inspiration to all those she meets.
