Exhibitor applications for OS+H Asia 2012, 8th Occupational Safety & Health Exhibition for Asia, are now available online at www.osha-singapore.com/exh-online-application.html or from Messe Düsseldorf North America. The event will be held from September 12 - 14, 2012 at the Suntec Singapore International Exhibition and Convention Center. With OS+H Asia, the organizer Messe Düsseldorf Asia (MDA) provides a central and international networking and business forum for the exchange of the latest solutions, applications and technologies for a safer and healthier workplace. MDA is the subsidiary of Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, renowned as the organizer of A+A - the leading international trade fair for safety, security and health at work.
Since its premiere in 1998, OS+H Asia has established itself as a primary trade fair for the industry and the last staging in 2010 attracted 22% more exhibitors and 15% more visitors than the previous event. Shirley Lim, General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, is looking forward to another successful trade fair in 2012: "With its 8th edition and an increase in visitor participation that has more than doubled over the years, OS+H Asia 2012 will continue to be the leading occupational safety and health forum in Southeast Asia. And after an extremely successful exhibition in 2010 with more than 5,000 visitors from over 40 countries, we will continue to increase our promotional activities in the region to attract even more OSH practitioners from Asia, thus establishing OS+H Asia as the commanding OSH event in Asia."
OS+H ASIA 2012 to feature conference and forum
The exhibits of the expected 150 international exhibitors at OS+H Asia 2012, 8th Occupational Safety & Health Exhibition for Asia, will be supported by the 2nd Singapore WSH Conference and the Forum on Safety & Health. The organizer Messe Düsseldorf Asia anticipates more than 5,000 international trade visitors for the event. OS+H Asia 2012 will take place at an opportune time as the Government introduced the workplace safety and health act in September last year. This initiative is an essential part of the new agenda to promote useful safety habits and encourage a strong safety philosophy in the workplace. The trade fair will be held from September 12 - 14, 2012 at the Suntec Singapore International Exhibition and Convention Center.
The Singapore WSH (Workplace Safety and Health) Conference 2012, organized by the WSH Council, Ministry of Manpower and WSH Institute, will be staged on September 12 and 13. With the topic "Changing Landscapes, Shaping a Progressive WSH Culture", the conference will bring together CEOs, senior government officials and workplace safety and health professionals to discuss issues such as:
- WSH: Important for business sustainability?
- WSH Professionals: Operational or strategic?
- How to leverage on partnership for WSH?
- How to shape a progressive WSH culture?
- Enforcement vs. ownership: A balancing act?
- An ageing workforce: Challenging or opportunity?
