Workplace Access & Safety are proudly sponsoring the Seminar Series at this years Sydney Safety Show - 3-5 September, Sydney Showgrounds.

By registering for the Free Seminar Sessions you’ll enjoy full-length free seminars from Industry Experts and other OHS leaders.

Launching the speaker series, Brent Hampson will reveal the secret to funding and managing large OHS projects:

“OHS is often perceived as a cost rather than an investment and a tangled web of red tape. Ironically, occupational health and safety professionals are better equipped than most to present a compelling business case for capital expenditure. Like so many things, the key to success may just be simplicity.”

Carl Sachs will reveal the insights of new Australian ladder research that could save lives.

“The many small details that comprise good design – just a few millimetres here and there – can make an immeasurable difference to the lives of people who work at height.”

“The imminent revision of the Australian Standard and Professor David Caple’s enlightening research on ladders will set new benchmarks for design.”
