Safety & Health Expo will provide the first major opportunity in over two years for the occupational health, safety and wellbeing community to meet face to face at the UK’s largest dedicated health and safety event in a safe and secure way.

The event will run in line with the industry recognised and Government approved Informa AllSecure standard designed to ensure the safety of all attendees. Informa AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the UK Government on 19 November 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves several health and safety measures, including deep cleaning, social distancing onsite, staggered arrival times and PPE, including face masks. 

Safety & Health Expo Connect 2021: 1-30 June, Online

The month-long online event running from 1-30 June will be the first time the health and safety profession can come together digitally on such a large scale. Attendees can participate in virtual meetings, discover the latest products and services in the marketplace and share learnings with their health and safety peers from any location.

Visitors can plan meetings using the Connect 2021 AI augmented platform, which will make intelligent recommendations based on their online profile. A series of presentations and thought leadership panel discussions focusing on the industry’s hottest topics, including gamification in EHS reporting and creating a culture of compliance, is scheduled throughout June. Dräger will also be hosting a virtual tour of its new safety roadshow truck fitted out with the very latest safety solutions, including fixed and mobile gas detection, respiratory protection and impairment solutions.

Over 32,000 visitors from 120-plus countries are expected to attend both events to connect with and view thousands of innovative products, not only across health and safety, but workplace wellbeing, fire safety, security, facilities management and intelligent buildings. Some of the biggest names in the industry include Dräeger, Brady, TAWI, Bollé, Access UK, RRC, SHE Software, alongside key safety associations RoSPA, NEBOSH, British Safety Council, HSE and IOSH..
