The Safety Show Sydney opens next week showcasing the latest workplace safety technology.
The show is timely with the introduction of new harmonisation workplace health and safety laws due to begin across Australia from January 1, next year.
Under the new laws Australian workers will be entitled to the same work health and safety standards, regardless of whether they are employed in Commonwealth, state or territory jurisdictions.
Although employers have generally welcomed the new laws there will be an increase in paperwork. There will be a need to adopt technology that will make compliance easier and improve workplace safety, and performance.
The Safety Show Sydney – to be held October 25-27 – at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park – is all about achieving these goals.
More than 250 exhibitors will display and demonstrate systems, tools and equipment designed for use across the spectrum of workplace environments. On show will be everything from Internet-based safety management software and safety systems to work wear and drug detection devices.
Co-located and held concurrently with The Safety Show will be two other trade shows, Sydney Materials Handling and Bulkex (bulk materials and power handling), which together are expected to attract well in excess of 10,000 visitors.
