Kay Seltitzas participated with DHHS/EPA investigations conducted in Rosebery in 2008/09 and is a researcher with the Toxic Heavy Metals Taskforce Tasmania.

John Rowe  "Heavy Metal Pollution and the Management of Health and Environmental Investigations in Rosebery – Is your pet faking it?”

John Rowe is a former policeman with the NSW Police and came to the Bar in NSW in 1970. In his practice he appears in all states of the Commonwealth and has a special interest in personal injuries, pollution and class actions.

He will speak on the factual circumstances surrounding the exposure of Rosebery residents to heavy metal pollution, the management of the threat by the Department of Health and Human Services and legal obligations of persons who may be responsible or obligated by statute.

Peter Long "Available Legal Remedies: How to Access Them"

Peter Long is an accredited specialist in personal injury law with Slater & Gordon and has a special interest in chemical injury claims.

Peter will speak about the mechanics of engaging a lawyer; the different Courts available to hear claims; the procedures through those Courts; the various types of damages awards available to injured people; and the likely timing of the finalisation of such claims.
