The 11th edition of the Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition for Asia (OS+H Asia) will return from 29 to 31 August 2018 in Singapore, to be held at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre. Organised by Messe Düsseldorf Asia, the exhibition will focus on safety, security and healthcare at the modern workplace.
This year, there will be seven renewed focus areas on Work at Height, Fire Protection, Environmental Control, Crisis and Emergency Management, Workplace Ergonomics, Smart Technologies and Health at Work.
The exhibition will take place in conjunction with the Singapore WSH Conference and Forum on Workplace Safety and Health. These parallel events will bring together a focused multidisciplinary international group of OSH professionals, thought-leaders and government officials who are committed to improving the workplace environment.
Advancement in technology and emerging labour market trends are constantly re-shaping the landscape of the workplace. In recent years, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is also said to have made rapid progress in raising OSH standards, performance and capabilities.
With that in mind, the 2018 OS+H Asia is expected to attract strong regional and international representations. It is estimated to have more than 200 exhibitors from 25 countries, plus five national pavilions and country groups will come from China, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan, according to the organiser.
In its previous edition in 2016, OS+H Asia welcomed 199 exhibitors from 25 countries and 4,500 trade professionals from close to 40 countries.
