The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) has issued a statement on very high-risk environments, including nightclubs, dance venues and large unstructured outdoor events. For more information please refer to the AHPPC website.
This page includes resources for workplaces in the Conferences, Events and Exhibitions industry on work health and safety, workers’ compensation and COVID-19.
The Conferences, Events and Exhibitions industry is an industry that involves employers, workers (including venue staff, vendors and exhibitors, hospitality and security staff) and others (such as attendees).
This guidance is aimed at Conferences, Events and Exhibitions and includes indoor and outdoor activities that involve set up and pack up of venues, ticketing, seating, exhibits or displays, sales and the movement of attendees through the venue.
These workplaces may include:
- conferences and seminars
- exhibitions, expositions and galas
- trade shows and product launch events
- corporate, fundraising and fandom events.
