Australia’s largest safety trade show Safety in Action is heading back to Perth next month with more than 150 exhibitors on show.

The exhibition, to be held at Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre on Wednesday June 11 and Thursday June 12, will feature the latest innovations in safety products.

Safety in Action Perth also provides a unique opportunity to network and learn from industry experts through a number of dedicated feature areas and free seminars. 

According to the WA Department of Commerce, the manufacturing sector recorded the highest incidence rate and second highest frequency of work-related lost time injuries from 2011-12.

SafeWork Australia claim that from 2011-12 there were 19,002 successful workers’ compensation claims for serious injury or illness in the manufacturing industry.

Over the five years from 2007-08 to 2011-12, the industry accounted for 16 percent of all serious workers’ compensation claims.

On average there were 60 claims each day from employees who required one or more weeks off work because of work-related injury or disease.

One of the “must-sees” of the two-day event is the new and improved Safety Seminars, to be led by sponsors Workplace Access & Safety.

Managing Director, Carl Sachs will lead the Are you ready for the revised AS1657 on walkways, ladders and platforms? session, which will deal with the major changes to the Australian standard that safety professionals need to consider.
