PRESS RELEASE | Registrations Open for The Revamped 2024 Workplace Health & Safety Show

February 2024

The Workplace Health & Safety Show is back - bigger and better than ever with a refreshed look and feel!

Recently acquired by Australian events and exhibitions specialist, National Media, the Show now boasts a revamped education program, rounding out its comprehensive offering. “We like to work in a space where we can really add value. Our events solve problems for the audience and create a platform where suppliers and vendors achieve their objectives,” explains Stephen Blackie, Commercial Director, National Media. 

“Behind the show and on a larger scale you can see the impact it has on the world. Health and safety are such a huge concern – one death is too many. We want to provide an event where organisations can find the tools, knowledge, best practise, technology, and equipment they need to create a healthy and safe place of work. Working on an event like this gives us a greater feeling of value and worth – that what we are doing is right for the world and the greater community, not only for the industry” comments Stephen.

“We strive to deliver an event that puts Australia on the global map as innovators and world leaders in health and safety. With this in mind, our end goal is to create the best safety event in the world,” he states.  The Show will focus on delivering a highly relevant, finger-on-the-pulse, free to attend education program, along with game-changing products and services. 

According to Stephen the show has grown by 25% and currently sits at over 130 exhibitors who will be showcasing the latest technology and products, much of what has never been seen before. Visitors will be able to touch and see demos of what's new in Work Health and Safety solutions. “Companies in this sector are incredibly innovative. We are particularly excited about the level of new technology that will be on show this year.”

Expo Geared- Up for a Great Visitor Experience

This year’s Show will also showcase the redesigned Spotlight Stages and Knowledge Centre, making them more comfortable, and geared-up for a great learning experience.

“We realise that in addition to all the great reasons visitors come to a show, networking opportunities, and meeting up with peers are also an important component. A signature of National Media events includes a central lounge where visitors can take a break or catch up on emails, and use the opportunity to network,” he adds.

The 2024 Show kicks off in Melbourne from 22-23 May, and then takes place in Sydney from 23-24 October, empowering visitors with the latest OHS tools, insights, and resources.

Summit Stage Puts Construction Safety And Worker Wellbeing In The Spotlight

WHSS show floorThe 2024 Workplace Health & Safety Show will feature three theatre stages, including:

  • A new Summit Stage, packed with more content. Already confirmed on the program are half-day summits on Worker Wellbeing, and Health and Safety in Construction. “Key areas of concern for our audience are the psychosocial laws and how workplaces can support their people. Meanwhile, the construction sector experiences a high proportion of injuries, accidents, and deaths. Our focus is on helping construction companies better understand the risks and improve their safety and compliance. This industry is modernising and faces constant changes, for example there’s new industrial manslaughter legislation coming in July; key stakeholders need to be aware of how to navigate the new guidelines,” explains Stephen.
  • The Spotlight Stage, showcasing a vast array of products and services available to the local market.
  • The Knowledge Centre, where industry experts will explore workplace safety and health through interactive forums and talks on topics including safety technology, injury prevention and worker wellbeing, measurement of safety performance, and psychosocial hazards – among others.

The complete free education program will be available soon, at
