Working hours shifts and fatigue conference

ANMF Working Hours, Shifts & Fatigue Conference

27 March 2020

 It is with sincere regret, due to the current concerns regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have made the decision to cancel our WHSF conference 27 March 2020. We currently have in excess of 200 attendees registered and given it is a full day conference where attendees would be in the conference centre in close proximity to each other, under the current circumstances it is not ideal and contrary to advice from government health experts.

We hope to be able to reschedule this conference again later in the year once things settle but at this stage we have yet to confirm a future date. We will reach out to you once we have a new date and hope that you will be able to attend at this new time. We appreciate your understanding and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
