Health And Safety Events – Why You Need To Attend

Health And Safety Events – Why You Need To Attend

20th January 2014

In March of 2014 the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is holding a Health and Safety Event at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC).  The event is being organised by the Western Business Exhibition which started holding a series of safety events in 2007 to bring together the best of the UK’s health and safety industry at a strategically located venue.  With support from the industry’s leading voices and stakeholders, these events have proved to be both popular and useful for visitors.  This conference and exhibition is free to attend.

Fixed Access LadderThe Health and Safety Event promises to provide a unique opportunity for thousands of workers and business owners in the fields of manufacturing, construction, commercial and public sector businesses.  The British Safety Council (BSC) supports the organising in delivering high quality free conferencing and education with a significant safety exhibition and free educational conference programmes.  Anybody who is responsible for the health and safety of a workforce would find this a valuable event to attend.

Exhibitors are provided with a cost effective way to connect with existing and potential customers from across the UK.  This is an opportunity to meet a host of influential buyers and procurement specialists in the space of two days.  An impressive list of exhibitors includes the British Safety Council, the British Red Cross and the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.  Event organisers focus on allowing exhibitors maximum exposure at minimum cost in order to avoid the financial risks normally associated with exhibitions of this type.

This accessible platform will enable exhibitors to:

  • launch new products and services
  • Generate new sales leads
  • Network with existing clients and industry colleagues
  • Minimise unseen costs in the two day format with value added stand packages

As for visitors who are responsible for workforce health and safety issues (whether they are safety professionals or employers), the event aims to provide invaluable knowledge and experience and the opportunity to connect with vendors who are the most respected operators in the UK.
Industry conferences of this type are a must if you’re a serious player.  Some of the benefits of attendance include the following:

Catching up with Trends – attending a conference is a great way of being on the cutting edge in your field.  The conference is often where leading companies will debut new products or offer sneak previews of future developments.  Staying ahead of the game in this way will ensure that you are knowledgeable and passionate about your work – a great way of presenting yourself during meetings and interviews.

Bolstering your Network – this is the best opportunity you’ll get to mingle with the best and brightest in your industry.  You can check out progress from industry innovators, trade ideas with like-minded people and keep an eye on what your competitors are up to and what your customers want.  Whether you’re currently looking for a new job or you’re making a long-term effort to build a strong network of useful contacts for the future, an industry conference of this type is the most effective way of doing so.
