Record number of visits to IOSH's expo stand

  Trumpet| News | 03 July 2017

Helen Peach, Membership Development Advisor, talking to an IOSH member on how to set up your development planIOSH’s stand at this year’s Safety & Health Expo (SHE) attracted a record number of visits.

There were 1,472 visits made to the stand at the event – well in excess of previous years – with information on career development, IOSH training courses, volunteering opportunities and the upcoming ISO 45001 standard on offer.

Also available were details on WORK 2022, IOSH’s new strategy, and the latest from the No Time to Lose occupational cancer campaign.

Meanwhile, IOSH-organised events on the Operational Excellence Theatre attracted packed audiences. Under the theme ‘All about risk’, there were presentations on the dos and don'ts of risk assessments, the adoption of ISO 45001, and managing risks of older workers. There was also a lively panel debate on what makes a good risk assessment.

Emma Carter, IOSH Membership Manager, said: “We had an unprecedented amount of interest in our stand at SHE.

“While some of the 1,472 visits will include some people who visited more than once, the number demonstrates the real appetite in the health and safety field to keep up-to-date with what IOSH is doing.”

SHE was held at Excel London from 20-22 June.

If you were unable to attend this year’s Safety & Health Expo – or attended but didn’t have the time to visit our stand – there’s a whole host of free books and resources on our website available to download. You'll find resources on safety and health management, environmental management, corporate social responsibility, and more. We’ll be exhibiting again at the Health & Safety North event in October at EventCity in Manchester. More information on the event and ways to register are available online.
