Safety Show Sydney kicks-off today

The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling exhibition both start today at Olympic Park, bringing together workshops, seminars, demonstrations and manufacturing and process safety products until this Thursday 29 October.

The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling are expected to draw around 10,000 visitors to Sydney Showground this year.

The two big occupational safety trade shows and The Safety Conference will coincide with Safe Work Australia Week in New South Wales.

Organiser Marie Kinsella of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences Pty Ltd says the events will be keenly attended by employers facing new OHS laws.

“Of all the states, NSW employers will need to deal with the most radical changes to the law if the draft national model is adopted,” she said.

“Bookings for seminars regarding the new laws presented at The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling have been so popular Safe Work Australia struggled to meet demand. Law firm, Deacons, will offer extra sessions for those who missed out in the rush.”

Many of the other big issues in OHS will also be addressed with safety workshops. The Safety Show’s principal sponsor, WorkCover NSW, will keep visitors abreast of three key areas with free daily seminars: Workers Compensation – What you need to know, Manual Handling and Smart Move Tool Kit, and Preventing and Dealing with Workplace Bullying.

Simplifying the complex field of safe work at heights will be the focus of a free workshop held by Workplace Access & Safety. The one-hour session explains how to make work sites safe and compliant with fall prevention regulations. Workplace Access & Safety will also offer door prizes with open entry for all show visitors valued at $5000.

Among the safety products and services exhibitors at the two shows are WorkCover NSW, Blackwoods, Elliott Australia, Ingal EPS, Ingal Civil Products, NTP Forklifts, Rockwell Automation, Spill Station Australia and Webforge.
