With Australia’s unemployment rate at relative highs, it is refreshing to note that the Northern Territory has the lowest unemployment rate of any Australian state or territory.

Darwin holds the title for the territory’s healthiest job market with the largest employment sector, mining, comprising 23.4 per cent of all Darwin industries.

The mining and energy industry production alone surpasses $2.5 billion per annum in the Darwin region.

Darwin’s import and export trade is showing no signs of slowing and continues to boom due to its spatial proximity to Asian markets and the Timor Sea. To ensure the successful progression of major industry growth, safety procedures and attitudes toward safety must be a primary focus.

Leading manufacturers exhibiting include Arbon Equipment, Vigil Anti Slip (Prism) and Materials Handling – displaying their innovative A-Safe Polymer Safety Barriers, manufactured from Memaplex with built-in memory and bounce back technology.

Exclusive to Safety in Action Darwin, Safe Work Australia will be hosting a one off free training session on the popular subject: ‘The Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals’.
