In free workshops at The Safety Show Sydney, WorkCover NSW will attempt to help visitors successfully navigate the biggest safety obstacles in the transport and storage industry.
Statistically one of Australia’s most dangerous sectors, WorkCover records show that NSW’s transport drivers faced a greater risk of death than any other worker.
In separate workshops, employers can prepare for new Work Health and Safety laws. WorkCover will explain why the legislation is changing and summarise the new model law and key issues for NSW. The authority will also outline what to expect in the lead up to implementation on 1 January 2012.
The free 45-minute workshops will be held daily during The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling at the Sydney Showground from October 26 to 28.
The two trade shows will host more than 300 suppliers of occupational health and safety solutions. Together, The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling normally attract around 10,000 visitors.
The Safety Show Sydney and Sydney Materials Handling will run during Safe Work Australia Week from October 26 to 28 at the Sydney Showground.
