Concern about how to address workplace health and safety under the new harmonisation laws helped lift attendances to The Safety Show Sydney last week.

Free seminars and workshops focusing on the new workplace safety setting and its impacts attracted big crowds, some with standing room only.

At the same time exhibitors were kept busy with visitors keen to check out technology that will make compliance easier and improve workplace safety and performance.

Co-located and held concurrently with The Safety Show were two other trade shows, Sydney Materials Handling and Bulkex (bulk materials and powder handling).

Exhibitors reported the level of interest generally as “high,” with some taking orders directly, others recording more than 100 serious inquiries per day for follow up, and still others using their presence at the show as a vital branding exercise.

Nearly 10,000 people visited the three shows.

The 2012 Safety in Action and Melbourne Materials Handling shows will be held concurrently at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from April 17-19.
