Safety leaders convened in Sydney for Workplace Health & Safety Show

The Workplace Health and Safety Show welcomed 2357 visitors to its Sydney event this year — 30% more than the attendees in 2022. Marie Kinsella, CEO of the International Conference & Exhibition (IEC) Group (the organisers of the show), said the event was a huge success, with a strong turnout from occupational health and safety professionals representing the building and construction industry, manufacturing, transport and logistics, health and pharmaceutical, agriculture, waste management and the education sphere.

The show’s free education program — which included seminars, panel discussions and workshops –— provided a comprehensive briefing on the latest regulatory changes, employer obligations, best practices and industry innovations. Visitors and participants also benefitted from the networking opportunities and the in-person engagement with prospective customers and industry partners. “The show proved to be the perfect platform for shared learning and dynamic discussion, with seminar theatres packed to capacity,” Kinsella said.

Local government, along with prominent safety associations and industry bodies were among the sponsors and speakers, including the Australian Institute of Health and Safety (AIHS), the Working at Height Association (WAHA) and SafeWork NSW. The show’s trade expo featured 150 leading hygiene and safety brands, including SC Johnson, KameLo, Natural Cool Air, Schmalz, Work Healthy Australia, Anchor Safe, the Black Dog Institute, Fleet Safe, Global Safety Index and more. These companies showcased the latest in occupational health and safety products, services and solutions, including innovations such as wearable sensors, mobile apps and cloud-based software systems.

“This expo catered to every aspect of workplace safety and worker wellbeing, from hygiene to PPE and safety gear, road safety, skin safety and psychosocial wellness,” Kinsella said.

In 2024, the Workplace Health & Safety Show will take place from 22–23 May in Melbourne and from 18–19 September in Sydney. “Building on the exciting momentum gained this year, we are anticipating that the 2024 shows will offer even more exhibitors, high-profile presenters and more visitors,” Kinsella said.
