After regularly supporting the Health & Safety Regional events programme, 3M has become the main partner sponsor for 2013

The partnership between 3M and the Health & Safety Regional Events begins at Health & Safety South, which takes place at Sandown Park, Esher on 12-13 March 2013 and continues with Health & Safety Scotland at Glasgow's SECC on 17-18 April, and Health & Safety North, at the Bolton Arena on 9-10 October. 3M will also be hosting informative and interactive seminars at each of the regional events.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Adele Wills for the 3M Personal Safety Division said: "We've been an event partner of the Health & Safety regional events for a number of years and have always found them extremely successful. The majority of attendees are health and safety managers who are our key customers and often the decision makers when it comes to choosing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

"The events allow us to demonstrate our holistic approach to health and safety and the added value that can be brought through engaging with manufacturers and industry experts. For 2013, we want to increase our presence and make attendees more aware of our everexpanding safety solutions offering.

Becoming the main sponsor of the show is a great way for us to achieve this." 3M is a forward-thinking manufacturer and knowledge base for PPE products and services, providing a wide spectrum from fullbody protective coveralls to specialist powered air and disposable respirators, eyewear and head and hearing protection products.

The 3M stand at the Health & Safety Events will be split into key areas where visitors can speak to members of the 3M team of safety solution specialists about their specific needs. They will also be able to learn more about the range of service tools available, from product selectors and training programmes to interactive webinars, seminars and technical bulletins. There will also be live demonstrations on the stand, featuring examples of the company's latest products.

3M will host two seminars at Health & Safety South. The first will focus on 'PPE Compatibility', looking at the challenges faced when multiple items of PPE are worn. 'The Science of Fit' is the subject of the second seminar which will look at evaluating the interaction between people and PPE products and ways to improve design, fit and productivity. Stand 122
