Remain compliant and keep safe
Published:  02 June, 2016

Between the 21 – 23 June, Safety & Health Expo, the UK’s leading health and safety event, returns to London as part of UBM EMEA’s Protection & Management Series - the UK’s largest event dedicated to protecting and managing property, people and information. PWE reports.

More than 13,000 visitors walked through the doors at Safety & Health Expo in 2015, and the show organiser says 2016 promises to be an even bigger event with over 300 stand-out suppliers attending including Evac + Chair International, Cirrus Research Plc, Safety Media, ATC Risk Management Services Ltd, RRC International and Praxis42, amongst many others. Safety & Health Expo offers the latest technologies and services to help the profession remain compliant and stay up-to-date.

Education, education, education

A big challenge that many health and safety professionals face day-to-day is that of staying compliant and up-to-date with the latest health and safety legislative changes as well as implementing effective health and safety training solutions.

Safety & Health Expo provides an ideal opportunity to trial and test eLearning services, personal protective equipment, fire protection solutions, lifting and handling aids and more.

The latest innovations and product launches will be unveiled from companies including Arco Ltd, Draeger Safety UK Ltd, Skyguard Ltd, The Safety Knife Company, Ultimate Ear Protection and more. The product trail will help guide you to these latest products as they’re launched at the show.

Keynote addresses from Colonel Tim Collins OBE, Kate Adie OBE and James Cracknell OBE - inspirational speakers who have all shown grit and determination in the face of adversity - will headline a packed programme of 80 hours of CPD-accredited seminars.

A programme of sector-specific case studies, best practice, training and legislative updates will take place in the six theatres at the Safety & Health Expo, including the Keynote Theatre, Occupational Health Theatre, Lone Worker Theatre, Fleet Safety Theatre, FPA Fire & Evacuation Theatre, and the Training and Careers Zone.

PPE and the Professional Clothing Show

The addition of the Professional Clothing Show this year will create the most comprehensive offering for PPE, workwear and corporate clothing within the UK, with leading companies from across the industry already confirmed to participate including Tranemo, Cintas, Dimensions, Portwest, Hunter Apparel, Sugdens and Keela International, to name a few.

The Professional Clothing Show will be at the heart of Safety & Health Expo alongside the SHE Live! Platform - a dedicated catwalk showcasing a range of new personal protective equipment, workwear and corporate clothing products as well as live demonstrations from key suppliers.

Awards and achievements

As well as being the key event for health and safety professionals to ensure they’re up-to-date with critical health and safety issues, Safety & Health Expo is also an opportunity to celebrate all the fantastic projects and accomplishments from the last year.

Both RoSPA and the BSIF will host prestigious awards ceremonies within Safety & Health Expo, with RoSPA celebrating 60 years of driving up safety standards at their Occupational Health & Safety Awards on 21st June and the BSIF also celebrating their Excellence Awards that highlight exceptional customer service and product innovation within the industry.

Alongside The Professional Clothing Show, the respected Professional Clothing Awards will recognise companies and individuals bringing the latest innovations and achievements to the professional clothing industry with a gala evening event on Wednesday 22nd June.

On 23rd June, a celebration of up-and-coming talent within the profession will be celebrated in conjunction with UK Health and Safety Week.

Future leaders of the profession will be recognised at the Rising Star Awards ceremony at 12.30 in the IOSH catering area. This initiative, supported by the British Safety Council, RoSPA, IIRSM, BOHS, and the Association for Project Safety, identifies key figures new to the profession who are already making an impact in their role. The NEBOSH Young Persons Awards, in association with NEBOSH, and the LOcHER Project Awards, in association with Safety Groups UK, will also be presented at this event to recognise new and emerging health and safety talent.

Women in Health and Safety

A key element at Safety & Health Expo is the opportunity to network and meet with industry peers.

Last year’s event saw the successful launch of the Women in Health & Safety networking group, which has grown exponentially over the last 12 months.

Fire, Facilities, Security and Service Management

Safety & Health Expo will be presented once again as part of UBM EMEA’s Protection & Management Series, where visitors will discover new solutions to meet all of their project requirements, across 1500 suppliers.
