New for 2024, the Workplace Health and Safety Show presents the Construction Health and Safety Summit.

Despite efforts to improve safety standards, construction workers continue to experience a disproportionate number of accidents, injuries and deaths compared to those in other industries.

Recognising the unique challenges and risks associated with workers in the sector, this half-day summit will bring together industry leaders & subject matter experts to explore the key topics shaping the construction health and safety landscape.

The Summit will cover critical topics ranging from navigating mental health and psychosocial risk factors, managing silica exposure, and construction-specific tools and strategies to create a safer and more efficient workplace.

Don't miss this opportunity to be part of the conversation shaping a healthier future for the construction industry.
