Prior to that, Heidi held senior positions at Xstrata Copper, the Gladstone Area Water Board and Diversified Mining Services.

Webinar Overview:
Following the re-identification of CWP in 2015, the Queensland Government has been actioning a response that encompasses prevention, early detection and support for workers with disease. This included the implementation of recommendations from both the independent review conducted by Monash University in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Chicago (Monash review), and the CWP Select Committee.

The Monash review was widely supported by the government, stakeholders and the CWP Select Committee and all 18 recommendations have since been delivered. This webinar will share the reforms to the Scheme as well as lessons learned along the way and applications to other industries.
