Leading the Way

CICA National Conference, Exhibition and Crane Display set for major success.

Plans are well underway for organising the 2022 CICA National Conference, Exhibition and Crane Display in Adelaide from 10–12 November 2022. Get onto registering for this event and book your accommodation as soon as possible, as the T20 cricket will be in town at the same time.

CICA thanks Underwriting Agencies of Australia Pty Ltd (UAA) for its generous Platinum Sponsorship of this exceptional event.

Cranes and Lifting magazine is the sponsor of the Lift of the Year awards.  This year, CICA will be accepting entries of lifts from 2020 onwards. These awards recognise excellence by those within our industry who have performed complicated and technically challenging lifts, or who offer new ways of solving day-to-day challenges our industry faces. I encourage you to enter, as the spin offs benefit your business through industry media coverage and by building your company’s profile.

After the uncertainty of the last couple of years and the economic headwinds Australia is moving into, the Conference theme ‘Leading the Way’ is both apt and visionary. The crane industry is front and centre of growth and the opportunities that will present in the renewables sector in the coming years mean that we need to ensure our workforce is well equipped.

Skilled labour shortages continue to impact most states and the only way we are going to combat this problem is to invest in new industry entrants and the traineeships on offer need business buy-in. CrewSafe enables owners and managers to gauge an operator’s competency, by using preloaded assessments and an obstacle course to test knowledge and practical ability. With new work health and safety legislation requirements in most states, CrewSafe keeps a record of how an employer has fulfilled its duty to uphold the standard of what is ‘reasonably practicable’.
