In an effort to raise awareness, Casella -- the leading provider of dust and noise monitoring solutions -- is offering visitors to its stand (N2100) the chance to win an exciting prize that it will announce on Twitter before the show.
All visitors have to do is listen to a selection of songs and identify them. But there's a catch -¦ each song will be digitally edited to emulate the effects of noise induced hearing loss.
Ten million people in the UK have some degree of hearing loss and that figure is expected to rise to around 14.5 million by 2031, so it is vital that we not only understand the effects of noise induced hearing loss, but also learn how to effectively manage the causes.
Throughout SHExpo, Casella's experts will be on hand to offer advice to anyone wishing to implement a successful noise or dust monitoring programme in their company, as well as running an offer for visitors to trade in any dosimeter to save up to 20% on the Casella dBadge2.
Casella's range of products will also be on display for hands on viewing, including the IS dBadge2 and Apex2 dust monitoring device.
Earlier this year, Casella launched its Intrinsically Safe dBadge2, meaning that noise monitoring is now safely available to hazardous industries, such as oil and gas, chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. This impressive development was the result of six months intense work for Casella's engineers and has made a significant contribution to the accessibility of noise monitoring.
SoloProtect is also the manufacturer of the Identicom lone worker device, now used by in excess of 160,000 lone workers, and will be located on Stand L1900, which is in close proximity to the lone worker theatre. The theatre will include speaker content from a range of industry backgrounds across the show’s duration, and will include sessions touching on every aspect of planning for, implementing, and adopting a successful lone worker solution.
Different jobs in different industries require different lens coatings for maximum optical clarity, effectiveness or wearability, comfort and ultimately, safety. With uvex’s new innovative ‘spider graph’ selection tool, it’s easy to plot and choose the right lens coating for the job, ensuring a more suitable lens coating, so eliminating wasteful trial and error, saving time and costs, and increasing productivity.
JSP launched its Lighthouse range of safety products in April 2015 as it revealed its exclusive partnership with the Lighthouse Club. For every product sold in the UK from the selected range, JSP makes a contribution to this worthwhile charity.

Ten years ago, 32-year-old warehouse operative Lisa Ramos was preparing to go home from work to celebrate her son Kieran’s 13th birthday… when she was hit by a reversing fork lift truck.The 2.5 tonne vehicle stopped moving with Lisa’s left ankle still under the wheels, and only her screams alerted the driver that anything was wrong.As the operator inched the truck forward and off Lisa’s leg, it took the skin and muscle with it. In Lisa’s own words, “My foot was hanging off… and my skin was hanging like a sheet on the back of my thigh.”
Dust, debris, dirt – the deadly 3Ds for those working environments where cleanliness is most certainly next to godliness.In food and drink factories, cosmetics manufacturing, health-focused facilities or pharmaceutical environments, the constant drive for improved hygiene goes right alongside ever-better product purity and quality. Which means every product application within that working environment must adhere – and contribute to – the strictest demands of hygiene.
