Safety innovations and mental health in the spotlight

Registration is now open for Australia’s leading Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) trade show, Safety in Action, on 5-6 September 2017 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

One in five Australian employees reported that they have taken time off work due to feeling mentally unwell in the past 12 months, due to stress, anxiousness or depression.

Innovation, whether in processes, technology and/or approaches to people, is also becoming more crucial to help solve ongoing problems and ensuring employees go home safely after work.

The upcoming Safety in Action Trade Show will tap into these key health and safety topics by introducing three new dedicated safety zones.

Each zone will include free, tailored seminar programs to educate today’s OHS professionals.

Along with the Safety Innovations, and Mental Health & Wellbeing zones, the third safety zone, Major Projects Zone, will focus on case studies of current safety projects in Australia to help attendees stay on top of the latest developments.

“This year to cater for the extra demand we have created three spaces on the trade show floor to run concurrent programs covering major projects, innovations, and wellbeing.  You can attend as many as you like from across all three streams,” Keith Barks, General Manager at Informa Australia, organisers of the event, said.
