Focused on lift, shift and load, the Queensland Materials Handling event will be held concurrently with the Queensland Safety Show and the new Queensland Manufacturing Show at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre later this month.
Forklift licensing under the new work health and safety laws will be the topic under discussion at special workshops presented by AIMM Industrial Training on the first and final days of the Queensland Materials Handling exhibition.
Materials and manual handling specialists will also be showcasing an extensive range of practical products and services including dock automation software from Leda Security that allows logistics centres to book and manage trucks much like airport traffic control.
Dockbrain from Leda Security allows truck entry within the specified visiting window and only at the nominated door to alleviate queuing if the truck and door are fitted with RFID.
Dockbrain can also manage opening and closing of equipment in sequence for enhanced workplace safety. Leda Security’s Tom Rozsa says that Dockbrain’s launch at the Melbourne Materials Handling show received huge response from visitors.
The software launch at the Melbourne show also offered a platform for Leda Security to showcase their dock levellers, high speed doors, insulated doors and automation systems.
ShockWatch Australia will also be promoting an integrated approach to safety with their EquipCommand software bringing together data from impact, tilt and shock sensors so that managers can monitor daily activities and meet long-term objectives for all equipment and operators across multiple facilities.
Complementing the vehicle safety technology will be a range of suppliers offering drug and alcohol testing services along with vehicle monitoring systems, which Queensland Materials Handling organiser, Marie Kinsella of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences says are emerging fields.
The Queensland Materials Handling Show and Queensland Safety Show will be co-located with the Queensland Manufacturing Show at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from June 21 to June 23, 2011.
