Industry Safety Forum Held In Sydney
With new Australian work health and safety legislation to be introduced in January 2012, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre recently convened a national forum to discuss key safety issues confronting the events industry. More than 20 industry representatives from around the country attended the event, discussing the new Work Health and Safety Model Act 2010, which will see all States and Territories harmonise their work health and safety laws so that they are similar in each jurisdiction. Centre director of operations Stephen Wood said the venue felt it was important to hold the forum so that the industry could collectively understand the impact of a national system, identify any gaps in the current state-based approach and address venue standardisation across the country. Another meeting of key managers will be held in December to coincide with the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia conference.
