What to expect at the Safety Show Sydney

Australia’s biggest workplace safety exhibition – The Safety Show Sydney to be held at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park 25-27 October, is approaching and here is a sneak peak of what to expect. 

The Safety Show Sydney, will offer building management a unique opportunity to find the latest OHS products all under one roof, along with hundreds of new and innovative ways to improve workplace performance.

Height safety

SafetyLink is an Australian-owned manufacturer of height safety anchor points, static line systems, permanent ladders and ladder stabilisers. At The Safety Show it will launch a new ground breaking temporary anchor that can attach to a metal roof or tile roof where no permanent anchoring systems are available.

SafetyLink’s FrogLink is designed to attach to all metal profiles with a single row of attachment holes, making for fast, simple installation, and reducing the load back onto the structure and person attached to the anchor from 25.76kN to 3.2kN. TileLink is the perfect anchor for tile and slate roofs, and is fixed by screwing five 12-gauge, 50mm roofing screws through the TileLink’s existing holes. Five alternative fixing rows enable the TileLink to be positioned to suit the pattern of the roof tile.

Online OHS compliance training

Everything you need to know about online OHS compliance training can be found at the Savve-E e-learning stand. An innovative compliance-training suite provides courses designed for both in-the-field and office working environments.

Managers can have highly effective OHS and other key compliance training out to employees within days, with courses tailored to the organisation’s needs.

Powersafe Products will use the occasion to release ‘Guardian by Powersafe’ – the first outdoor IP66 rated portable electrical distribution board of its kind in Australia.

Complete with RCD/MCB protection and an earth screened lead, it is the only board of its size safe for outdoor use. Powersafe will also show an extensive range of electrical safety products.

Ugly Fish’s Angry ambassador

Ugly Fish is a leading Australian sports and safety eyewear brand that will feature wraparound sunglasses designed to protect the eyes at work or play, with rock singer, television presenter, actor and charity worker, Angry Anderson, taking the role of Ugly Fish’s safety ambassador at the stand.

All the lenses in the Ugly Fish Safety Eyeware range comply with AS NZS standards, are optically correct with no distortion and have anti-fog and anti-scratch coatings. They are suitable for use with hard hats and earmuffs and the temples (arms) are generally shorter, slimmer and very flexible. Coverage is maximised to reduce risk of eye injury from dust and other particles and polarised products are available for those exposed to UV. 

Work ware that protects

The new Mechanix Wear Safety Range of gloves will be officially launched at the Hot Chilli Source stand. Mechanix Wear is a range of technically advanced work gloves that have been carefully designed to minimize the chance of injury and maximize the user’s ability to get the job done.

It ‘s a long standing brand used by NASA, Boeing, the Holden Racing Team, Ford Performance Racing, Casey Stoner’s Ducati Team and is the official gloves of NASCAR racing.

The Tanami Hat by Vision Safe, with a 50+ UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) rating, is designed for outdoor work in harsh Australian conditions. In addition to providing excellent solar protection, the Tanami Hat offers a generously sized brim to help cut out sun glare, uses shower proof material and has a flexible back panel to shield the neck. A toggle strap assists in securing the Tanami Hat in the windiest conditions and a soft towelling headband and a wide range of sizes ensure a comfortable fit can easily be found.

Who needs heavy work boots? Lifestyles Industries Group will present new CarbonMax technology in its Wolverine Guardian Work Boot line. The CarbonMax safety toe is resistant to extreme cold and heat and is 50% lighter than a steel toe, but still offers all the protection needed in harsh work environments, while leaving the wearer less fatigued.
