Specific Work Practices
1.0 General Overview Exhibitors are a valued member within the Exhibitions & Events Australia Event Management Program and therefore we are committed to ensuring that our exhibitions are a safe environment for our exhibitors, their staff and contractors throughout the move in - move out stages of the exhibition.
Exhibitions & Events Australia considers that accidents, injuries and incidents can be prevented through appropriate management and planning and accordingly we have developed policies and procedures that aim to protect the health and safety of all.
To ensure that risks at Exhibitions & Events Australia events are controlled it is a requirement for Exhibitors to read the contents of the Exhibitor Risk and Safety Plan and induct their staff and contractors on the requirements prior to commencement of the move in stage.
These guidelines are not intended to be exhaustive nor are they a substitute for or a replacement of exhibitors or contractors own safety policies and procedures.
It is the responsibility of the exhibitor, contractor and/or agent to comply with the requirements of Occupational Health and Safety Legislation, Health and Safety Regulations, other applicable rules and regulations and work practices.
The Safety Policy at Exhibitions & Events Australia shall ensure a workplace that is safe and without risk to the health and welfare of our employees, exhibition suppliers and to the people affected by our undertakings, including visitors and exhibitors.
