Western Australia’s largest workplace safety trade show, the WA Safety Show, will take place in Perth from 24 to 26 August 2010.

The first WA Safety Show in 2008 attracted 4,000 visits, with the mining, building and construction, and manufacturing sectors dominating the visitor list.

WA Safety Show organiser Marie Kinsella of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences expects similar attendances this year, she said.

“This show only comes around once every two years and the response to the inaugural WA Safety Show highlighted that the west deserves and demands local support from specialist suppliers,” she said.

“In one afternoon at the WA Safety Show, visitors can find solutions to the vast array of safety challenges they face, such as radiation, noise, vehicle and lone worker safety, materials handling and even wellness.”

The WA Safety Show is designed to keep visitors abreast of the latest regulatory changes. It will cover the new-model Work Health and Safety Act to be implemented around Australia, along with seminars that will outline the implications for Western Australian workplaces.

The WA Safety Show and the concurrently-held WA Safety Conference presented by the Safety Institute of Australia in WA will take place at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre.
