Safety excellency to be shared in Melbourne

Finalists in the WorkSafe Awards and other organisations that have excelled in workplace safety will tell their own stories at April’s Safety In Action workplace safety trade show.

To be held concurrently with Melbourne Materials Handling from April 29 to May 1 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Safety In Action is expected to again draw a crowd of over 10,000 business people to visit three acres of exhibits. Last year, one in every three visitors represented manufacturers.

Among the diverse products and services displayed by the 350 or more companies at the two shows will be conveyors, height safety products, lifting aids, waste management systems, and workplace psychologists. One of the new products tipped to be of particular appeal to the engineering and manufacturing industries is the WorkFlow ventilation system for hard hats exhibited by Wrights Hardware.

Complementing the exhibits is a Case Study Showcase, which organiser, Marie Kinsella of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences, said would inspire visitors to act.

“Many of the case studies we’ve selected show how businesses have used some of the technology on display at Safety In Action to make a real difference at their workplaces,” she said. “The case studies are not theoretical, they’re practical, real-world examples of safety at work that you just can’t ignore.”

“Cemex, for example, will tell how Health by Design’s injury reduction program contributed to achieving a 66 per cent reduction in lost time injuries and a 54 per cent reduction in recordable injuries in New South Wales.”

The Case Study Showcase will be presented on each of the three days of the Safety In Action and Melbourne Materials Handling trade shows. Visitors to both the shows can attend the case study presentations free of charge.
