Straight from the Horses Mouth

My name is Ian Eggins, I am a retired 31 year veteran of the Queensland Prison Service and Queensland Corrective Services.  


When I started my career, the men and women who worked within the Prison system knew the meaning and real value of “espirit de corp”. Sadly, that does not appear to be the case today.

Consequently, upon my retirement,  I was asked to join the ranks of Workers First and the Australian Prison Officers Association (APOA), a growing team of specialist consultants.

My new role in this organisation, will be undertaking workplace investigations and industrial advocacy to assist members and clients in the specialist industries such as Police, Corrective Services, Security and Investigations as well as other kindred industries such as Customs and Immigration Detention.

I am also a qualified Workplace Trainer and Assessor currently expanding my existing skills to up skill workers and new practitioners in the security and investigation industries.

My primary role as a workplace investigator and industrial advocate consultant with Workers First and the Australian Prison Officers Association is sure to keep me busy with the growing membership reliant on the extensive knowledge and expertise that I  bring to the table.

If you would like more information on the services and the support that can be provided by Workers First and the Australian Prison Officers Association, I can assist you with his as well as matters concerning your employment or any training needs.

Please email me on ian.eggins@workersfirst.com.au or call Ian through the Workers First office on 07 3807 3807.

I can also assist you with becoming a member of Workers First and the Australian Prison Officers Association.
