Vistors flock to QLD Safety Show


Organisers are expecting more than 5000 trade and industry professionals to attend the Queensland Safety Show and Queensland Manufacturing Show which opened in Brisbane yesterday.

As well as featuring the latest in safety products and technology from more than 200 exhibiting companies, the Queensland Safety Show offers expert seminars dealing with the new work health and safety laws.

Representatives from Safe Work Australia, Norton Rose law firm, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland and Enterprise Connect will explain how to attract funding, what to expect from new OHS laws and how to meet obligations manageably, within budget.

The Queensland Manufacturing Show will showcase the latest technologies in CAD/CAM software, programming systems and general industrial engineering products when it debuts at the co-located Queensland Safety Show.

Marie Kinsella, managing director of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences Pty Ltd, says the co-location of the Queensland Manufacturing Show with the established Safety Show will benefit both exhibitors and trade show visitors.

"The Queensland Manufacturing Show will offer thousands of visitors the opportunity to make face to face contact with major suppliers of the latest technologies available, as well as keeping up to date with work health and safety requirements."

"There's plenty to see, from alcohol and drug testing, breathing apparatus and corporate health right through to vehicle safety. It's a big job for OHS professionals just to keep up with new safety products and a large dedicated work health and safety event like this makes it so much easier."

The Queensland Safety Show and Queensland Manufacturing Show, which ends tomorrow, is being held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
