A free height safety workshop will be held as part of the Sydney Safety Show during Safe Work Australia Week.

The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling will bring more than 300 specialist safety suppliers to the Sydney Showground from October 26-28.

The Safety Show features occupational health and safety solutions from first aid through to forklifts and hoists through to health programs.

Exhibitor Workplace Access & Safety will conduct the free workshop on height safety – one of the most lethal risks on Australian worksites.

Height safety expert Carl Sachs says NSW employers are likely to face the greatest changes under new harmonised regulations.

"Safe Work Australia plans to release draft national model height safety laws this year, which are expected to mirror the national code of practice published just last year," he says.

"NSW employers need to reconsider their approach to height safety but the good news is that the code is clearer and more practical than the NSW regulations and it's a great guide to compliance in NSW and around Australia.

"While NSW offers only three levels of control, the national hierarchy specifies five more distinct levels. It's more prescriptive and easier to follow."
