The ninth annual A-OSH EXPO , Africa’s largest occupational health and safety (OHS) expo, takes place from 14 to 16 May 2019, at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand. Here, you will once again find Africa’s most comprehensive personal protective equipment (PPE) offerings all under one roof.
As in previous years, Securex South Africa 2019, a show with an established 26-year pedigree within the security and fire sectors, runs alongside, as does, for the first time, this year’s Facilities Management Expo, which brings together all aspects of products and services associated with property and building management and maintenance.
All aspects of safety, security and health at work are brought together at A-OSH Expo, across the spectrum of safety, security, health-at-work, and environmental issues. The show helps to match up the sector’s leading product and service providers with Africa’s OHS professionals and business leaders, providing a platform for knowledge exchange and relationship building, and bringing delegates and exhibitors alike access to the latest thinking, products, trends and legislation.
Held over three days, A-OSH EXPO features a number of highly popular free-to-attend seminar theatres, which provide in-depth content on critical industry issues.
The best on offer
Sven Smit, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, says high-risk work environments in the mining, agriculture, industrial and construction sectors – which have historically played strong roles in the economy down the years – mean that OHS has a strong focus here for the government, business and employees in turn.
He notes, ‘These sectors have historically had a continuously strong presence at A-OSH EXPO each year, and the show’s Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) exhibitors have always been able to showcase the best that is on offer. A-OSH EXPO 2019 has already once again lined up key sponsorship from well-respected PPE companies, Dromex and BBF, and we are very happy to have exhibitors of this calibre committed to next year’s show. We further anticipate having additional key exhibitors once more in the working at height sector, as well as fire safety, which of course both feed into the PPE arena in their own ways.’
Platinum Sponsor Dromex is a major player in the supply of technology solutions to personal protective equipment and, together with its international partners which are all leading industrial players, is active in the fields of textile, chemical, environmental sustainability and research and development.
Gold Sponsor BBF Safety Group (BBF) is an integrated workplace safety solutions provider that helps customers create safe working environments. The company offers a full portfolio of head-to-toe PPE and workplace safety advisory services that range from auditing to consulting and training.
‘Every kind of work exposes its employees to potential dangers, whether they relate to working with machinery, working at height or underground, being exposed to hazardous chemicals or even being subjected to psychological stress. Whether your interest in OHS stems from playing a role in the government or private sector, or whether you are an employee interested in workplace health and safety, we are excited to begin the journey to A-OSH EXPO 2019 and bring you our comprehensive and holistic offering,’ concludes Smit.
