Safety workshops for manufacturers

In free workshops at The Safety Show Sydney, WorkCover NSW will present the latest
information on safety issues in manufacturing and how they affect premiums.

Statistically one of Australia’s most dangerous sectors, WorkCover records show
manufacturing-related injuries in NSW cost $1.5 billion in 2008/09.

In separate workshops, manufacturing employers can prepare for new Work Health and Safety laws.

WorkCover will explain why the legislation is changing and summarise the new model
law and key issues for NSW. The authority will also outline what to expect in the lead
up to implementation on 1 January 2012.

The free 45-minute workshops will be held daily during The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling at the Sydney Showground from October 26 to 28.

The two trade shows will host more than 300 suppliers of occupational health and safety solutions.

The Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling normally attract about 10,000
visitors. The manufacturing sector was well represented at last year’s event, accounting
for one in four visitors.

The Safety Show Sydney and Sydney Materials Handling will run during Safe Work Australia Week.
