According to Safe Work Australia, the nature of the work in the manufacturing industry is a relatively high risk environment and this is reflected in the comparatively high level of fatalities and serious workers' compensation claims (accounting for 7 per cent of fatalities and 13 per cent of serious claims). Providing a safe working environment can make for a better, more efficient manufacturing business.

The Safety Zone at National Manufacturing Week will showcase the latest technologies, products and services to improve WHS standards and compliance and reduce safety expenditure. The Conference Program will deliver essential information to help business owners and managers understand the common risks in manufacturing and protect their people from workplace safety hazards.

The manufacturing industry has the second highest serious claim frequency rate with 8.9 serious claims per million hours worked.
