The nation’s largest workplace health & safety event, Safety in Action, takes place in Sydney Showgrounds at Olympic Park on 6-8 September 2016.
More than 5000 are expected to attend the event from across a range of industries including manufacturing, government, construction, healthcare, transport, distribution, cleaning and engineering.
The expo features over 20 free seminars and more than 150 different exhibitors demonstrating the latest in workplace safety solutions.
“It’s estimated that over 2,000 workers die from a work-related illness each year, highlighting the urgent need for national improvements to prevent and reduce the number and severity of injuries and illnesses in the future,” says Keith Barks, the general manager of Informa Australia, which is a joint presenter of the event with the Safety Institute of Australia (SIA).
A key focus of the event will be mental health and physical wellbeing with presentations from Beyondblue, Safe Work NSW and workplace safety training consultants Aframes Safety.
Running parallel to Safety in Action will be the Safety Institute of Australia’s National Convention, a two day conference featuring global and Australian safety leaders who will address the theme of ‘Disruptive Safety’.
The convention program will include the SIA annual general meeting, OHS education awards, women in leadership forum, OHS leaders and CEOs’ breakfast.
Also at Safety in Action Sydney will be Australia’s largest cleaning and hygiene show CleanScene. Presented by the National Cleaning Suppliers Association (NCSA), the co-located event will feature a number of exhibitors catering for cleaners, commercial, industrial and facility managers, government agencies and purchasing officers.
Attendance at Safety in Action Sydney and CleanScene is free and open to any business with a safety and hygiene interest.
