Issue 401 - 17 July 2014


Dear Subscriber,

During a recent review of the NSCA business it has become apparent that in order for NSCA to be in a position to continue its mission of providing information, inspiration and support to Australian industry, we need to separate the commercial and public service arms of the business.

The NSCA Board believes it can best do this by separating the Training & Consulting services business and allow the public service activity to continue to focus on the member activities, website and information provision, magazine, events and awards.

In the NSCA Board’s view, Wesfarmers Industrial & Safety (WIS) is the ideal organisation for us to partner with.
