SAFETYCON - VIC Safety in Construction 2014

3 - 4 June 2014
Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, VIC, Australia

SAFETYCON has been tailored for all stakeholders engaged in construction projects in both building and resources industry to better understand these developing safety issues.

Expotrade are pleased to announce SAFETYCON - VIC Safety in Construction Conference 2014 and is excited to bring this stimulating programme full of leading industry OHS professionals to the resources hub of Australia.

On the 1 January 2012, the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 took effect with various States adopting the Act as a whole and other States considering a harmonisation of the Act to work within their existing needs. At this stage Victoria will not adopt the national model workplace health and safety laws in their current form but supports the principle of national harmonisation and is continuing towards best practice legislation

The Victorian construction industry employs around 225,000 Victorian workers – one of the state's fastest growing industries. Construction work is high risk. Every week, 50 Victorian construction workers are seriously injured and have to stop work, often because basic site safety is not up to scratch. The construction industry is faced with significant safety issues including adopting and harmonising the new legislation State-wide as well as dealing with ongoing challenges such as skills shortages, fatigue management, drug and alcohol abuse, and dealing with immigration workers vs domestic workers. All have been identified by the industry to have specific implications to the complexity of the safety issues OHS professionals are dealing with today.

The SAFETYCON - VIC Safety in Construction Conference 2014 has been tailored for all stakeholders engaged in construction projects in both building and resources industry. This Conference will allow participants to better understand these developing safety issues by presenting a holistic view of the greater challenge presented. These include ensuring a collaborative effort and commitment to safety by generating innovative safety management systems and strategies.

The SAFETYCON - VIC Safety in Construction Conference 2014 will look at the challenges facing the Victorian Government as it explores interim models before completely implementing the WHS Act 2012. The Conference will also discuss the impact to the construction industry as organisations begin to streamline the changes.
