“Building a safety leadership culture from the ground up” is the theme for the Safety First Conference & Expo, to be held from 9th to 12th May 2017 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event aims to shift away from the old-school safety philosophies of controlling staff through policies and procedures to actively engage employees and their leadership with the specific safety challenges faced by heavy industries.

Safety First will provide delegates with the latest policy and regulation overviews, practical expert advisory sessions, industry case studies, interactive workshops and live demonstrations aimed at safety practitioners in industry sectors from manufacturing, mining and utilities to building and construction.

According to Event Director Robby Clark: “The Safety First Conference & Expo pools the latest expertise into one place, helping delegates acquire the fundamentals of promoting a safety leadership culture, improving mental health and wellness in an industrial environment and keeping abreast of emerging developments in industrial safety and technology.”

“Our 2017 theme encourages the next generation of safety leaders to value the wisdom of the workforce, respecting employee intelligence and inherent capacity all while encouraging safety at all levels.”

Visitors and delegates will have the opportunity to be face-to-face with key decision makers from leading companies, with the exhibitor list including A-Safe, Anthem, Axelent, Dohrmann Consulting, Honeywell Safety, JTA Health Safety & Noise Specialists, Poster Faktory, Safety Mate and UVEX.

The conference programme is extensive, with sessions on: promoting a safety leadership culture; mental health and wellness in an industrial environment;
safety and industrial technology; emerging developments in industrial safety; and legal and policy updates.

The Safety First Conference & Expo will be colocated with National Manufacturing Week, Austech and ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo.
