The Health and Safety Event is set to be the first and only major event to reunite the UK’s occupational safety and health community when it opens its doors on 7-9 September 2021 at the NEC in Birmingham.
After two years of no live events, OSH professionals will be able to network in-person with their peers, share best practice and explore the latest innovations and trends in the sector. Hosting more than 200+ exhibitors, there is no event in this scale where delegates can meet directly with experts to compare thousands of the latest products and solutions for their health and safety management.
The Health and Safety Event will boast a number of exciting new features, including the Registered Safety Supplier Trail in partnership with The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF). All suppliers of this trail are members of BSIF and have signed a binding declaration that the safety equipment and services they offer meet the appropriate standards, fully comply with the PPE regulations and are appropriately marked. Follow the trail and be assured that the PPE you are buying, is from a Registered Safety Supplier.
Sponsored by HSE Recruitment Network, the Professional Development Zone will offer expert advice to advance your career and support your future growth as a health and safety professional. Featuring live onstage interviews and a series of workshops and presentations, this interactive zone will equip you with the tools and techniques to unlock your potential.
HSE Connect will debut at this year’s event and will see the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) bring a highly engaging programme and speaker line-up of experienced professionals to address the practical issues, latest policy developments and solutions you need to run a safe, healthy and sustainable working environment.
The Machinery Safety Zone, supported by Premier Partners Pilz UK and PUWER Machinery Guarding, will showcase the latest technologies and solutions around this vitally important area of the workplace. While cost reductions and efficient production lines are important, the safety of employees and managing the risks from equipment and machinery are important factors in purchasing decisions.
The Health and Safety Event will boast six theatres including The Knowledge Exchange Theatre (sponsored by Southalls), supported by Health & Safety Matters (HSM), featuring a series of panel discussions and key topics such as RIDDOR and the responsible person, mitigating the risk of mental ill-health, UKCA marking and what it means for PPE, the future of health and safety legislation and much more.
The British Safety Council Conference, where delegates can discover the latest updates and developments in health and safety management. Key sessions include the impact of the revised sentencing guidelines on senior management commitment, the implications of changing regulations post-Grenfell, COVID-19 workplace risk management and more.
The popular Lone Worker Theatre (Sponsored by Lone Worker Safety Live) will also bring together experts in their field to explore the challenges for lone and remote workers as we settle into new ways of working. Topics discussed will include best practice ways to manage the key issues of wellbeing, safety and security for lone and remote workers as we change our working practices post COVID-19.
As part of the Safety & Security Event Series; the event is uniquely co-located with The Fire Safety Event, The Facilities Event, The Security Event, and for the first time, The Emergency Services Show and newly launched National Cyber Security Show. With one registration, delegates will have free access to all six events.
