Welcome to our first newsletter of 2020.

Like you, we've been devastated by the recent bushfire events in Victoria, NSW and Queensland.  We hope you have been able to stay safe and not been directly affected.

Back in the office, Richard and I have been reflecting on bushfires in history and if there are any key take away messages.  

In light of these events, I have written an article on the bushfires from our due diligence perspective. It also details our involvement in Victoria’s Powerline Bushfire Safety Taskforce and the continuing committee.

We have also revisited and updated our Safety Due Diligence White Paper and the Powerline Bushfire Safety Taskforce Case Study. We hope you find these interesting and insightful.

Also included in this newsletter is registration details of our encore webinar, Introduction to Engineering Due Diligence, and our public workshop dates.

If you have any feedback regarding our content, or want to discuss your due diligence requirements, we’d love to hear from you! Simply reply email, or give us a call on 1300 772 333.

’Til next time
Gaye Francis, Partner
