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

Due to high rates of work-related injuries and illness, the manufacturing industry is one of the priority industries for the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy. Still today, many hazards put manufacturing workers’ health and safety at risk, ranging from asbestos, chemicals and heat to stress, noise and manual handling. Whether in processes, technology and/or approaches to people, it is becoming more and more crucial in helping to solve ongoing problems and ensuring employees go home safely after work.

To stay on top of the latest health and safety regulations & developments and the mental health and well-being of the workers, the upcoming Safety in Action tradeshow will introduce three new dedicated Safety Zones. All three zones will run concurrent seminar programs covering Major Projects, Innovations, and Mental Health & Wellbeing, to educate today’s OHS professionals. All seminars are free to attend.

Some key take-away sessions at the Safety in Action Show, include:

  • Mitigating Heat Stress – Lessons learnt from 2017, Dr Matt Brearley, Managing Director, Thermal Hyper Performance
  • GHS in your workplace: Making Chemical Safety a priority, David Clingin, Account Manager, Chemical Safety
