Quarterly Member Update

Friday 4 August 2017


Download event flyer here

Come along to Master Builders SA’s next Quarterly Member update - a 2 hour seminar designed to keep professionals up to date with business demands from industrial relations, risk management, insurance, apprentice and technical areas.

Hear about the most relevant topics that professionals in our industry should be aware of including regulation changes and current issues.


Job Accelerator grant

The State Government is introducing initiatives such as the $200 million Future Job Fund and an extension of the Job Accelerator Grant, offering up to $15,000 for each new apprentice businesses hire. We will discuss the initiatives taken by the state government to provide funding to encourage the development of key industries and create jobs and explain how it can influence your business.


Non-conforming product update

The Grenfell tower fire in London has raised public concerns about the condition of existing buildings in this country, in particular those that have been audited interstate and found to have non-confirming products. A number of steps have been implemented by both federal government and state government to help prevent catastrophic events occurring here. We will be presenting to you the actions our governments have undertaken over the last two years to protect the consumer and detail the checks that need to occur for builders to make building construction compliant.


DPTI outcome based safety culture

The Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) require all contractors who work for them to undertake a self-assessment prior to commencing work on site. DPTI perform an audit of the self-assessments and detail how safety measures should be implemented on site such as the requirement for contractors to provide a safety management plan. Our presentation will detail the self-assessment process, describe where the pitfalls exist and explain what action we are taking as an organisation to assist our members.


Early Intervention of injury management

Understanding the steps and processes required to maintain professional relationships with your employees is not only important in facilitating a productive workplace culture, but may also help reduce your ReturnToWorkSA premiums. Our presentation will highlight the importance of early intervention to reduce the affect workplace injuries has on your business.


Indemnity Insurance update

The South Australian market for Building Indemnity Insurance is being consolidated under QBE from 1 July 2017. QBE will become the sole SA insurer and the number of brokers will be significantly reduced. The changes increase the indemnity limit from $80,000 to $150,000 for policies issued on or after 1 July 2017. We will be presenting on what this means for residential builders, building indemnity insurance and the benefits MBA Insurance Services can offer.


Industrial Relations - starting a new employee 

After deciding to engage a new employee, there are a number of considerations you need to take into account to ensure you meet all your statutory requirements.  This presentation will focus on engaging a new employee, specifically focusing on the Building and Construction General On-site Award 2010, and help you understand the conditions of employment.

This is a FREE event for members. Non-members tickets are available for $20 (GST inclusive).
