This season’s National Manufacturing Week (NMW) will have a powerful security focus – in accordance with increased scrutiny on OH&S problems at work.
Makers are somewhat more aware more than ever to supply a secure, productive workplace for workers.
The government recently launched Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012 – 2022, establishing a fresh way for work health and safety in Australia for another decade.
The strategy provides framework for business, authorities, unions and other organisations to work collectively to enhance workplace health and safety.
Co-founded with Austech, NMW is Australia’s leading integrated business event. Paul Baker, Exhibition Director of NMW 2013 said: “Businesses are well aware a secure, healthy workplace is both a duty and a chance to foster longer term productivity.” Mr Baker says the strategy document names manufacturing for a priority area for actions – establishing the anticipation that manufacturers should recognize and embrace new methods to enhance their workplace security.
“Across the broader display, a great variety of exhibitors are bringing products which feature improved security. For instance, we’ll have welding equipment featuring automatic crash detection, chemical free industrial cleaning that removes dangerous solvents in the cleaning procedure.”
NMW 2013, will provide new and advanced merchandise and services for OH & S professionals who are searching for security – specific equipment, along with safer means to execute their existing procedures.
