Australian Control Room Network Association
Control Rooms are the human and built environments in which operators, controllers, engineers and planners are relied upon to make good decisions and effectively monitor, integrate and collaborate, all for the benefit and safety of every stakeholder involved with the business, and the plant and assets which they control.
They are expected by their managers, colleagues, and themselves, to make reliable and timely decisions in a suitably safe, comfortable and ergonomic environment.
The ACRNA is a not-for-profit, membership-managed, industry association established in 2017 to provide a forum to support the network of control room users and stakeholders.
Its mission is the pursuit of control room best practice.
