Safety and Health Expo – May 2022

Thousands of visitors are expected at the Safety & Health Expo next May, where exhibitors promise to flood the floor with ground-breaking health and safety solutions, ranging from a lifesaving CPR tool from British Heart Foundation to vibrating social distancing tags. 

Powered by the Safety and Health Practitioner (SHP), the Safety & Health Expo, the UK’s largest dedicated health and safety event, will return to ExCel London from 17-19 May 2022, allowing the health and safety community to reconnect for the first time in over three years. 

It is expected that thousands of health and safety professionals will attend the Safety & Health Expo this year, keen to make up for lost time by reconnecting, learning and sharing with the entire profession from across the globe.  

Attendees will enjoy face-to-face networking opportunities, including the RoSPA Awards and Gala Dinner, networking breakfasts and drink receptions, as well as a conference curated specifically for H&S professionals. Also in attendance will be inspirational speakers delivering the most informative and educational seminars on the very latest in legislation, industry standards and best-practice.  

These include inspirational keynotes from:  

• Award-winning documentary maker, producer and writer, Louis Theroux (Thursday 19 May, 11:15) 

• Mandy Hickson, one of the first female pilots to serve in a front-line Tornado GR4 squadron, played an active role in the conflict in Iraq (Wednesday 18 May, 11:15) 

Speaking about the unique opportunities provided at the Expo, Chris Edwards, the Safety & Health Expo Event Director, explained that, in addition to networking, “visitors will also be able to assess and source brand new solutions for their business at Safety & Health Expo, including workwear, behavioural safety programmes, safety harnesses, PPE, occupational health products, e-learning, training solutions and more.” 

On the product launch front, British Heart Foundation will be showcasing both My Wellbeing Check and RevivR at the Expo, as well as inviting attendees to take part in a demo version of the 15-minute RevivR tool.  

A low-cost, highly impactful digital wellbeing assessment tool that lets companies identify what their employees’ health and wellbeing needs are, My Wellbeing Check lets employees complete a 5-minute online self-assessment, after which they are assigned a personalised dashboard that collates their overall wellbeing and cardiovascular risk. The anonymised results feed into a company-wide report to help them build their wellbeing interventions. 

Believed to be the first of its kind, RevivR helps users learn lifesaving CPR in 15 minutes. “The training is easy, free and quick – all you need is your mobile phone and a cushion; in 15 minutes, you’ll have the confidence to step in and save a life in an emergency,” explained a spokesperson.  

“There are over 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests every year in the UK and tragically, less than one in ten people survive. The BHF wants to triple the survival rates of out of home cardiac arrests by 2030 and by learning CPR, employees can help us achieve that. Giving CPR and using a defibrillator can more than double the chances of survival; the British Heart Foundation’s RevivR training tool will teach you how to recognise a cardiac arrest, give you live feedback as you practice chest compressions and show you how to use a defibrillator.” 

Also introducing a new product will be ZoneSafe, a vibrating social distancing tag, acting as a proximity warning safety solution for industrial work sites and vehicles. The system detects pedestrian workers, moving vehicles, assets and hazards, reducing the risk of accidents through system alerts and vibration feedback. Equally essential to new businesses as well as established multi-conglomerates, ZoneSafe creates a safer workplace, and a safer workplace means a safer workforce. 

Rebo Systems, the industrial labels and signs specialists, are looking to launch a new product at the expo, as well. The SMS R1, a new product for creating in-house safety signs and labels, prints in colour and can cut any shape, giving customers increased control over their products and the unique ability to make single or multiple signs and labels in any shape and quantity.  

On a final note, it mustn’t be overlooked that a Safety & Health Expo visitor pass gives unlimited access to the entire Protection & Management Series, which includes IFSEC International, FIREX International, Facilities Show and Intelligent Building Europe.
