National Manufacturing Week (NMW) and the National Safety Council of Australia (NSCA) have joined forces to make workplace safety a priority at this year’s show.

More than 150 workers lost their lives in the Australian workplace last year.

As a result, National Manufacturing Week is aiming to make Australian workplaces the safest in the world through its new partnership with NSCA.

NSCA’s landmark presence at NMW2014 will include a stand in the Health and Safety Product Zone, where the NSCA will showcase safety solutions and training products.

Also, experts will be on-hand to outline consulting and auditing resources available to industry. 

Visitors to the NSCA stand can have their safety questions answered at no cost by Australia’s leading safety experts.

NSCA will also participate in the NMW Health and Safety Solutions Theatre. This dedicated area on the exhibition floor will house a rolling series of presentations – live and free-to-attend for visitors.

The Theatre will feature OH&S experts with strategies, ideas and inspiration about creating safe workplaces.

Adam Baldock, CEO of the NSCA said: “The unfortunate fact is that many of the workplace injuries and deaths we saw in 2013 came from the manufacturing sector.”

“We are firmly committed to reducing these statistics – by giving industry the skills and resources to reduce their risks – and where better than National Manufacturing Week for the NSCA to showcase its commitment?”

Exhibition Director for NMW 2014, Anthony Reed says the NSCA’s participation adds further momentum to the Health and Safety Product Zone.

NMW 2014 will be held at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park from May 13-16. Entry is free for trade.
