A showcase of top health and safety solutions

24 May 2018

Safety & Health Expo 2018 will take place this year at ExCeL, London on 19-21 June and now includes an occupational health and wellbeing zone

Following the success of the health and safety event and conference in 2017, the Safety & Health Expo team have been in close conversation with the profession to ensure that this year’s show is full of fresh, inspirational ideas as well as the innovative solutions needed to move your health and safety practices forward.

The profession is experiencing a shift. Industry-wide there’s a definitive need for a more holistic approach to all-inclusive wellbeing as well as an acknowledgement of the huge benefits that this brings to employees and businesses alike. These concerns are reflected in this year’s event, which has launched a brand new Occupational Health and Wellbeing Zone to help inspire practitioners.

In proud partnership with NEBOSH, HSE, IOSH and RoSPA, Safety & Health Expo is driving this shift within the profession, acting as a catalyst for a more inclusive approach and serving the profession in an increasingly holistic and effective manner. 

What’s On? 

Showcasing top health and safety solutions from 300+ UK and international suppliers, visitors can source from a range of behavioural safety, risk management, training and occupational health products and services from trusted names including Traka, Mascot International, Draeger, Evac+Chair, Ikar GB, RRC International and Safety Media.  

Occupational Health & Wellbeing Zone – new for 2018

The new Occupational Health & Wellbeing Zone will have a dedicated seminar theatre sponsored by Acre, and a relaxation zone – plus visitors will be able to take part in yoga classes in the heart of the show.
