SAFETY A PRIORITY

TOTAL FACILITIES 2015

Health and safety is top of mind for most professionals concerned with facilities management. Although successful compliance with new and updated regulations and codes is an ongoing and necessary challenge, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by Australia’s stringent health and safety standards. But with ongoing education and training, facilities management professionals can stay on top of this important aspect of their role.

T

he annual Total Facilities presents a prime opportunity for professionals to enhance their knowledge of new and emerging technologies and solutions, as well as developments within the industry.

The event will cover: • essential services, • exit and emergency lighting, • fire and safety prevention, • fire protection systems, • materials handling,
