NSW businesses working in the energy industry have been invited to get on board for a new initiative to drive growth, innovation and collaboration across the sector, supported by the NSW Government.

‘Energy NSW’ will be launched at a free industry forum in Newcastle tomorrow (Friday 16 June), with businesses and organisations invited to attend.

“Australia’s energy sector is being transformed. The challenge of achieving lower emissions has seen innovation in energy generation and storage, as well as more choice for consumers who want to control their energy use,” said NSW Minister for Trade and Industry, Niall Blair.

“The changes across the sector provide new opportunities in a range of areas, including solar photovoltaics, battery storage and smart energy technologies.

“We want NSW’s energy industry, the community and government to work together to make the most of these opportunities and challenges.”

The Energy NSW Industry Forum at Shortland – from 8.45am to 1.30pm – will launch and help build an action plan for Energy NSW, a new initiative of the NSW Government’s Energy and Resources Knowledge Hub which is led by the Newcastle Institute of Energy and Resources.

The NSW energy market has many participants including providers, suppliers, buyers, users and researchers, and the forum will bring them together to develop stronger links and promote knowledge sharing to help build NSW’s energy, technology and services sector for the future.

It will also help businesses identify and target opportunities in the changing energy system and better understand energy-related strategies and activities of the NSW Government, National Energy Resources Australia and industry stakeholders.

Free registration is now open for Australia’s leading Occupational Health and Safety in Action Tradeshow on 5-6 September at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Safety innovation and Mental Health & Wellbeing are becoming increasingly important components of Occupational Health and Safety Management. One in five Australian employees reported that they have taken time off work due to feeling mentally unwell in the past 12 months, due to stress, anxiousness or depression. Also Innovation, whether in processes, technology and/or approaches to people, is becoming more and more crucial in helping to solve ongoing problems and ensuring employees go home safely after work.

The upcoming Safety in Action Tradeshow will tap into these key health and safety topics, by introducing three new dedicated Safety Zones. Each zone will include free, tailored seminar programs to educate today’s OHS Professionals. Next to the Safety Innovations and Mental Health & Wellbeing program, the third safety zone will focus on case studies of current Major Safety Projects in Australia, to stay on top of the latest developments.

“This year to cater for the extra demand we have created three spaces on the Tradeshow floor to run concurrent programs covering Major Projects, Innovations, and Wellbeing. You can attend as many as you like from across all three streams,” said Keith Barks, General Manager at Informa Australia, organisers of the event.

A snapshot of the free seminar sessions includes:

  • Implementing a mental health and wellbeing strategy in the workplace, Nick Arvantis, Head of Research & Resource Development, Beyond Blue
  • Software to manage and improve Workplace Mental Health, Sarah O’Leary, Opportunity Creator, myosh
  • The Future of Corporate Health – Current Trends and Future Direction, Debra Villar, Director, Complete Corporate Wellness
  • Mitigating Heat Stress – Lessons learnt from 2017, Dr Matt Brearley, Managing Director, Thermal Hyper Performance
  • Non-Conforming Building Products and Safety Law, Katherine Morris, Norton Rose Fulbright
  • Legal Approaches, Safety Culture and Human Factors in the Aviation Industry, John Ribbands, Barrister and Aviation Human Factors Specialist, ALAANZ

After years of downsizing and pessimism, there are encouraging signs that the manufacturing industry in Australia may be turning a corner. Employment and new orders have grown. Business optimism is improving. And Australians still firmly believe that a healthy manufacturing sector is crucial to national prosperity.

The Centre for Future Work and The Australia Institute are hosting the National Manufacturing Summit, a one-day gathering at Parliament House. The goal is to gather experts from industry, the policy community, higher education, and the media to discuss the renewed positive potential for Australian manufacturing, consider how the industry is presently perceived, identify barriers to its future expansion, and propose initiatives to accelerate the sector’s innovation and growth.

Speakers and panels will include industry leaders, policy experts, political leaders, and journalists.

Keynote speaker

Robert Kuttner – Heller School, Brandeis University; and Co-Editor of The American Prospect

Manufacturing Jobs and the Wellbeing of Our Communities: A View from the US

The loss of manufacturing jobs has caused widespread, lasting hardship in many industrial societies. And now, in the wake of Brexit and Trump, the political consequences of that ongoing hardship can no longer be ignored. Why is manufacturing work so important to the wellbeing of communities, and what can be done to start repairing the damage?

  • Richard Denniss, Chief Economist, The Australia Institute
  • Roy Green, Dean, UTS Business School
