1:30pm Tuesday, 15 October 2019

The building industry is just the latest sector to be rocked by deep-seated issues relating to codes, certification and standards.

During this time, it’s important for quality companies to stand behind their service and offerings, and to turn adversity into an opportunity.

RMIA is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, 15 October 2019 at 12.30pm AEST, with Chris Gray and David Begg of First Light Consulting to discuss:

  • Current issues within the building industry
  • National legislation vs state-based legislation on complying development
  • Brand reputation and protection 
  • Certification and insurance related issues, which are causing a lack of trust in the industry more generally

Whether your business is associated with or directly impacted by the building industry issues, or you want to learn how risk managers are dealing with the issues in order to apply it to your sector, you won’t want to miss this special webinar.
