Industry and government to jointly present the future of manufacturing
Australia’s largest showcase of manufacturing innovation and inspiration, National Manufacturing Week (NMW), returns to Sydney Showground from 9th to 11th May 2018.
The three-day event provides an unrivalled opportunity for industry decision-makers to network, collaborate and learn about the next generation of technology and industry growth.
The speaker programme will be split into three theatres including the Industry 4.0 Theatre, Business of Manufacturing Theatre and Safety First Theatre. Visitors will hear from more than 40 industry leaders on the impact of digital transformation, innovative design, and new business practices in the manufacturing industry.
To officially kick-start the speaker programmes, SafeWork NSW will exclusively launch the Manufacturing Work Health and Safety (WHS) Sector Plan 2018-2022 in a VIP-ticketed session as part of the Safety First Theatre. The Honourable Matthew Kean MP, Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, and Elizabeth Tosti, Director Metropolitan Operations and Sector Initiatives will unveil a crucial new bipartisan agreement to ensure ongoing workplace health and safety.
The Manufacturing WHS Sector Plan 2018-2022 has been developed by SafeWork NSW alongside industry and key sector stakeholders to help manufacturers promote safe work practices, set the highest standards to reduce serious injuries and foster a skilled workforce who look out for each other, and always keep safety ‘front of mind’.
