Work safety convention coming to Sydney
More than 5,000 decision makers in Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) across manufacturing, government, construction, healthcare, transport, distribution, cleaning and engineering will gather in Sydney on 6 – 8 September 2016 for Safety in Action.
The largest workplace health and safety event in Australia will feature over 20 free seminars on insights and priorities for employee safety.
“It’s estimated that over 2,000 workers die from a work-related illness each year, highlighting the urgent need for national improvements to prevent and reduce the number and severity of injuries and illnesses in the future,” says Informa Australia general manager Keith Barks.

The convention program will include the SIA Annual General Meeting, OHS education awards, OHS leaders and chief executives’s breakfast and a women in leadership forum.
Mental health and physical well-being will be a key focus of the free Safety in Action seminar series, which will hear from leading industry professionals discussing this year’s theme ‘Keep your workplace safe’.
Presentations include Beyondblue, SafeWork NSW, Myosh, Mayo Hardware, Aframes Safety and full details will be released shortly.
