A leading safety commentator says:

The Central Safety Group meetings are like an OHS conference spread over the year. Ten top guest speakers on OHS matters with a conference (Christmas) dinner to round off the event. CSG seems to me to provide the best return on investment for professional development in my area. The organisation provides access to both important guest speakers and to the information opportunities from its varied members. I don’t know anywhere that offers access to OHS experts and regulators for minimum of $60 a year. There are different cost structures for non-members but membership is so cheap, why wouldn’t you join?
