The 2018 A-OSH EXPO was the biggest to date, drawing in thousands of visitors, with over 100 exhibitors represented. A notable trend was the upswing in exhibitors in occupational health training and screening, as well as in software and auditing.
The topic of occupational health and safety (OHS) is taking on increasing importance, both for office workers as well as those in more physical sectors such as mining and construction. Workers' rights will once again come under the spotlight at Africa's premier OHS trade show, turning 9 in 2019!
A-OSH Expo is co-located with SECUREX, the event that focuses on all elements of the secureity sector - from physical to cybersecurity, and everything in-between.
The free-to-attend A-OSH Expo seminar theatre kept attendees abreast of the latest in health and safety in the workplace trends & featured 14 highly topical seminar sessions.
PASMA gave key information on legislation and industry regulations when working at height.
SAIOSH ran their 8th annual conference alongside A-OSH Expo 2018.
When it comes to occupational health and safety (OHS) trends, you’ll always find the latest information at A-OSH EXPO, Africa’s leading OHS trade exhibition.
The PASMA Working at Height Theatre returns to A-OSH 2018 – Africa’s leading occupational safety & health trade exhibition – for a third year on 22-24 May 2018; providing a dedicated height safety hub for delegates to access expert speakers, live demonstrations, and an opportunity to gain Continued Professional Development (CPD) points with South African Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Saiosh).
The A-OSH Expo gathers the Occupational Health & Safety Industry together; such that visitors can gain in-person experience of new products & services as well as the opportunity to learn & improve via the SAPEMA Free-to-Attend Seminars. Paying attention to employees’ wellbeing makes good business sense and as such should be viewed as a critical component to a business strategy for success.
What does the A-OSH EXPO offer
"It’s been a good first day. The expo has been nicely set out and organised, and everything has been well sign-posted. We’ve been showcasing some new concept technology at the show, which is available in Australia and Europe but not yet in South Africa – we’re testing the demand for our OutDry waterproof technology. We’ve had some good leads."
"I was expecting to see a lot of innovation and out of the box thinking from exhibitors and competitors this year, and overall, I am impressed with the show and I like that there's great networking opportunities."
"This is the second year that I’ve attended A-OSH EXPO, and I’ll be visiting over two of the three show days. I come to network and to gain information and feel that this forum is one of the best for keeping abreast with new information; I enjoy the variety of information available. The presentations are very informative and the speakers very well prepared. There was an even greater attendance at the seminars for 2018; in fact there was standing room only for some."
