Tools that save lives at work: Safety First 2016

Workplace safety professionals can gain powerful behavioural tools, leadership strategies and a world-first risk calculator at the 2016 Safety First Conference & Expo, May 11 – 13, Sydney Showground – Sydney Olympic Park.  Safety First Conference & Expo combines a showcase of workplace safety solutions with a high-level conference program with new ideas and strategies for dramatically improving your workplace safety benchmarks.

Safety First takes place alongside National Manufacturing Week, Australia’s largest, longest-running manufacturing industry event, to help draw together a broad cross-section of  industry professionals.

Building on the success of its launch in Melbourne last year, the Sydney edition of Safety First present exciting new ideas: including from Cristian Sylvestre, MD of SafeStart. Cristian will share neuroscience research that links accidents with the mindset of ‘being on autopilot’. Arising from this new knowledge about our subconscious, Cristian has developed a personal safety skillset with simple tools that, he comments, can improve your chances of avoiding a workplace incident by up to 90 percent.

The conference will also address vital mental health issues, with industry leaders from the Fair Work Commission, Worksafe NSW, beyondblue and more speaking on key topics ranging from Dealing with Bullying to a Practical Approach to Creating Mentally Healthy Workplaces.

Alongside its far-reaching conference, Safety First will showcase new and innovative solutions for workplace safety.

The combined Safety First event, alongside National Manufacturing Week, provides your best opportunity this year to see practical solutions, while meeting industry leaders and gaining new strategies for boosting workplace safety.
