An Industry RPAS/Drone Company – Phillip Kent of Kent&Co
Don’t miss this ground-breaking opportunity of taking your practice forward in terms of additional service offerings to your clients.
For the first time in South African aviation, the Institutes will be working with the Civil Aviation Authority to oversee its own portion of the industry, namely drones in Geomatics, with the goal of simplifying and encouraging compliance. Listen to the proposed model for an Industry RPAS/Drone Company. Expressions of Interest will be taken at the conference on a first come first served basis as the company does have a CAA imposed cap on the number of member owned drones permitted within the scheme.
Kent&Co is a groundbreaking firm, that caters for the market gap between traditional law firms and day-to-day flight operations. This puts Kent&Co in a position to be able to provide much needed legal services to the largely neglected aviation industry. Challenging norms is a fundamental component of Kent&Co’s goal of developing aviation in South Africa.
Pearl Nkosi - Health and Safety in the Mining Industry
At the rate at which we are going, will we ever achieve Zero Harm?
Health and Safety in the Mining Industry is a very broad yet every single aspect plays a significant role in health and safety in the mining industry. The discussion point for my workshop will be the South African Mining Health and Safety journey so far and beyond under the topic “At the rate at which we are going, will we ever achieve Zero harm?”I will be looking at where the journey began, the motivation for the journey and what we still need to do in order to further improve on the industry performance.
The aim of the workshop is to challenge the current mindset and approach to health and safety in the South African Mining Industry as well as provoke industry professionals and organized labour unions to do more in order to facilitate the achievement of zero harm.
