Workshop Series

In 2020 VicWater introduced a new program called the Workshop Series. Each of these events focus on a dedicated topic in a smaller group setting.

Our first sessions included New Regulations for Industrial Manslaughter presented by Maddocks and an Executive Safety Leadership Program. Titles are designed to service our members training and development requirements.
