WHS Show Melbourne line-up announced

The eagerly anticipated return of the Workplace Health & Safety Show 2022 will feature industry trailblazers and game-changing newcomers. Speakers will present a series of live, interactive two-way learning experiences covering all the latest trends, technologies and issues faced by Australian businesses today.

Taking place over two days (25–26 May) at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, this year’s comprehensive seminars and forums cover topics including innovation, technology, major hazards, wellbeing, mental health and injury prevention — just to name a few. Attendees will also discover 90+ exhibitors showcasing the latest resources, services and products for the safety industry in the exhibition.

After a tumultuous two years, with the global pandemic taking a toll on mental health and leading to a restructuring of the modern workforce, Australia’s leading workplace health and safety event promises thought-provoking discussions and interactive forums on all the hot topics.

“We are excited to create a personalised and interactive space for professionals to hear from industry leaders on how best to foster healthy and safe work environments,” said Marie Kinsella, CEO, IEC Group Australia.

The Free Education program will take place over two days. Sessions will take place in the Knowledge Centre or on the Spotlight Stage.
