First Queensland Safety Show popular
29 June 2006 - BRISBANE, Australia
Forklift manufacturers Linde Materials Handling, Crown Equipment and Toyota Material Handling, and Genie telehandler distributor Skyreach exhibited at the inaugural Queensland Safety Show last week. The 175 exhibitors ranged from companies offering safety signage, safe work attire, ear plugs, first aid, finance and insurance, and rack protection to anti-slip solutions. Spill Station Australia was awarded "best use of exhibition material" by show organisers. Besides a neatly laid-out stand, Spill Station's yellow, oversized showbag was popular with visitors. Nathan Cartwright, Spill Station's business development manager, said he initially thought the showbag was too big but its design attracted visitors looking for a big bag to carry smaller showbags. In 1983, the Australian Defence Force approached Cartwright's father, Bruce Cartwright, for a solution to OH&S issues associated with oil and chemical spills. Bruce Cartwright then designed the world's first spill response kit inserted in a wheelie bin. David Punter, from Global Safe Technologies, Brisbane, Queensland, was at the show to exhibit anti-slip products. He said several big corporations had shown interest in his products because their forklifts were "slipping on wet floors". "The response has been really good. We have a fair bit to do next month." Mark Althaus, director of Colby Storage Solutions, said there had been much visitor interest in his protect-a-rack system. Click here to read more
