The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre has launched a new online program to provide key work health and safety information to its clients.
Under the new system, organisers, exhibitors and contractors will be able to complete a simple online health and safety induction, with the Centre maintaining a record of compliance for all future events.
The new program follows the latest changes to work health and safety laws aimed at harmonising regulations across all states.
The first online modules for organisers, exhibitors and performers as well as Centre contractors were introduced in November, with the Centre planning to launch a further two modules for agency staff and event-engaged contractors in December.
Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen said the new system would enable information to be shared with all parties to ensure events were delivered in the safest possible environment.
“By bringing the induction online, we’re aiming to save our clients and contractors a lot of time and improve efficiency all round,” Mr van Amerongen said.
