Free registration is now available for Australia’s leading Occupational Health and Safety in Action Tradeshow on 5th and 6th September at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Due to high rates of work-related injuries and illness, the manufacturing sector is one of the priority industries for the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy. Still today, many hazards put manufacturing workers’ health and safety at risk, ranging from asbestos, chemicals and heat to stress, noise and manual handling.

Whether in processes, technology and/or approaches to people, it is becoming more and more crucial to help solve ongoing problems and ensure employees go home safely after work.

Innovative products and services from 100+ exhibitors

Visitors to the show can network with the experts and source the latest innovative products and services in OHS on the trade show floor. Major corporate sponsor myosh Safety Management Software will be joined by exhibitors, including technology partner Riskware, Bureau Veritas, Mix Telematics, Sine Group, Chemical Safety International, Retailquip and QHSE Integrated Solutions. The full exhibitor list can be found on the show website.

To stay on top of the latest health and safety regulations and developments as well as the mental health and wellbeing of workers, Safety in Action will introduce three new dedicated health and safety zones. All three zones will run concurrent seminar programs covering Major Projects (main stage), Innovations, and Mental Health & Wellbeing, to educate today’s OHS professionals. All seminars are free to attend and the full programme can be found at www.safetyinaction.net.au.
