Big crowds expected for WA Safety Show


Western Australia's largest workplace safety trade show, the WA Safety Show, returns to Perth from August 24 to 26.

The inaugural show in 2008 attracted 4000 visits, with the mining, building and construction, and manufacturing sectors dominating the visitor list.

WA Safety Show organiser Marie Kinsella of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences expects similar attendances this year.

"This show only comes around once every two years and the response to the inaugural WA Safety Show highlighted that the west deserves and demands local support from specialist suppliers, Ms Kinsella says.

"In one afternoon at the WA Safety Show, visitors can find solutions to the vast array of safety challenges they face, such as radiation, noise, vehicle and lone worker safety, materials handling and even wellness."

As well as new products and technology, the WA Safety Show will keep visitors informed of the latest regulatory changes.

Show seminars will discuss proposed changes to the Work Health and Safety Act.

"We'll have experts at the show to explain what changes employers can expect and how they should prepare," Ms Kinsella said.

The WA Safety Show and WA Safety Conference, presented by the Safety Institute of Australia in WA, will be held at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre.
