Safety in Action display set to grow

The new occupational health and safety laws unveiled late last year are likely to see a fresh influx of visitors to Victoria's largest workplace safety event, Safety In Action and Melbourne Materials Handling, this April.

At least 10,000 visitors routinely attend the two Melbourne trade shows, while hundreds of delegates participate in Australia's largest professional OHS gathering, the associated Safety in Action Conference. 

To be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from April 20 to 22, Safety In Action and Melbourne Materials Handling will follow hot on the heals of the vigorous public harmonisation debate.

WorkSafe Victoria director Stan Krpan says national harmonisation presents a great opportunity for safety and its practitioners.

"Harmonisation achieved what some people thought impossible," he says. "Now is the time to start preparing for the introduction of the new laws. The indicators are that the economy is recovering and when business begins to invest again, it should be in safe outcomes. This has an enormous impact on attracting the right workers."

Mr Krpan will speak at the Safety in Action Conference presented by the Safety Institute of Australia and WorkSafe Victoria is the principal sponsor.

The Safety In Action and Melbourne Materials Handling trade show will host more than 300 suppliers of specialist safety products and services. 

The popular fire and security area launched last year is also expected to expand. A new health and aged care feature area will provide answers to the manual handling issues that are the biggest cause of injury to the million Australian workers who belong to the sector, together with hygiene and contamination. 

Other feature areas will address height safety, corporate health, and training and technology.
