News – Revised Industry Safety Guidelines to be announced at ENTECH CONNECT 2014.

As I had previously mentioned, LPA have been working on Industry Safety Guidelines. Well I have just received the following media release and the news is good. At the ENTECH CONNECT 2014 in Melbourne the revised version will be released. Please read below:


ENTECH CONNECT are pleased to announce the revised LPA Industry Safety Guidelines will be delivered at the forthcoming ENTECH CONNECT conference to be held in Melbourne on July 2014.

An initial OH&S Summit was held at the first ENTECH CONNECT event in 2012, attracting over 150 industry members from across Australia, where it became evident relevant and up-to-date Guidelines on Work Health and Safety were needed.

Live Performance Australia (LPA) subsequently convened the Work Health and Safety Working Party to review the 2001 Safety Guidelines for the Entertainment Industry.   LPA then invited industry Work Health and Safety experts to revise and develop new Guidelines for the Live Performance Industry.

“The new Guidelines will develop principles of risk management and provide the foundations of workplace safety in the live performance and events industry.  These Guidelines have been developed in conjunction with LPA members, and will be delivered at next year’s ENTECH CONNECT event” stated David Hamilton, Director, Workplace Relations, LPA.

Julius Grafton, CX Media, will facilitate the free-to-attend discussion on the first afternoon of the show’s Education Program.  The session will be held from 3:30pm – 5:00pm on Wednesday 23 July 2014 followed by networking drinks on the show floor.  Registration to the show is free and will be open in February 2014. Bookings are recommended to secure seats at the session.


ENTECH CONNECT will be held 23 – 24 July 2014 at the Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton Melbourne. A specialised industry event, ENTECH CONNECT focuses on providing exceptional and intimate education and training sessions targeting Pro Audio, Audio Visual, Integration, Broadcast, Lighting & Staging professionals.

ENTECH CONNECT is held over two days in Melbourne providing an informal, inexpensive and social environment for visitors to network as well as get their hands on the latest industry technology.  ENTECH CONNECT introduces new and fresh exhibitors, and provides industry members in Melbourne a technology showcase.

ENTECH CONNECT is a bi-annual event that runs sequential to its sister bi-annual event – ENTECH. Visit:
