Occupational Health & Safety Exhibition venues throughout Australia are becoming increasingly mindful of Occupational Health & Safety issues, especially those involving the move in and out of an exhibition. EEA is also an OH&S conscious company. We are working with venues, suppliers and exhibitors to ensure a safe workplace for us all. It is the responsibility of all exhibitors to ensure that their employees, suppliers and sub-contractors comply with all relevant health and safety regulations and have a current Occupational Health and Safety policy. It is therefore important that both you and your contractors have in place:
Current Work cover Policy
Public Liability Policy is included in your stand package (from move in to move out)
Occupational Health and Safety Policy
Safe Work Procedures for all work to be undertaken at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
