    We are pleased to announce that, as COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed throughout the country and we moved towards 'COVID normal', it is our intention to resume AUSPTA "in person" events in 2022.

    The first event will be the annual general meeting and conference, to be held on Friday 25th March 2022 at Graduate House in Melbourne, Victoria.

    A reminder that all AUSPTA events are free of charge to financial members and their guests.

    Further information will be forwarded in due course.

    As many members would be aware, evidence of continuing professional development (CPD) is required for renewal of your AUSPTA membership every year. However, we wish to acknowledge the difficulty in attaining the necessary CPD points while in-person events have been postponed or cancelled during the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly the AUSPTA Executive and Committee has made a decision to waive CPD requirements for the 2021 calendar year.

    If you have any further queries please get in touch.

    Freshly minted AUSPTA committee member Peter Milligan found this article online from insurance giant QBE.

    "Prevention is better than the cure; the adage goes. And when it comes to ensuring your electrical equipment is functioning as it should, it’s an adage worth paying attention to. 

    Faulty electrical equipment is a major source of workplace fires – in fact, a report in the US discovered that 21% of industrial fires came from faulty equipment – and fires in the workplace can have a devastating effect on both a business and its employees.

    From not being able to operate for some time to the potential loss of specialised equipment, the impact can be far-reaching. And that’s before you consider injury or loss of life."

    Members operating in the electrical space will no doubt already be familiar with the ever increasing uptake of thermography as a recommendation, or often requirement, by the major underwriters. It is encouraging to see major players in the insurance industry giving electrical thermography considerable airtime. It is also notable that QBE is aware of, and specifically addresses in their article, requirements surrounding certification.

    "Of course, not just anyone can conduct a thermographic scan of your electrical equipment. Accredited Level I, II or III professionals trained in the use of a thermographic camera, scan analysis and reporting and recommendation of corrective action, should undertake thermal imaging projects for businesses.

    Commercial electrical contractors may offer thermal imaging as an additional service – and if not, they should be able to recommend an accredited professional."

    QBE have also published a fact sheet that's downloadable in PDF format and provides some excellent content for thermographers to forward onto potential, and current, end-users.

    “The Australian Institute for NDT wish to advise that the decision has been made to postpone the 16th Asia Pacific Conference for Non-Destructive Testing originally scheduled in October 2021 to be from Tuesday 28th February to Friday 3rd March 2023 in Melbourne, Australia.

    The world has been greatly impacted by COVID-19 and given what the current challenges with safety and the accessibility of travel to and around Australia will be in 2021, it was agreed a postponement was the best course of action to take.

    Further updates will be provided in 2021 around the event and how to be part of it."
