UBM India, India's leading exhibition organiser, will be hosting the sixth edition of OSH India, South Asia’s largest trade show in the Occupational Safety and Health industry at CIDCO Exhibition Centre, Vashi, Navi Mumbai from November 23 to 24, 2017.

The safety show will bring together internationally renowned exhibitors, consultants, business experts and key government officials under one roof, to discuss global best practices and seek solutions to some of the most pressing challenges in the field of workplace safety and health.

Despite a greater focus on occupational safety and health, there is still inadequate education at various levels and public awareness is still absent, as managements and workforce don’t always place safety as a top priority. Although, many organisations have taken the initiative to organize training sessions to create awareness, a concentrated and cohesive strategy is clearly not in place. UBM India’s OSH India is geared to filling this vital gap.

OSH India is the country’s definitive annual exhibition for the safety industry that attracts over 140 brands worldwide and facilitates ways to incorporate best practises at the workplace, especially to promote health and safety within it. The expo is supported by DISH ( Directorate of Industrial Safety and Health) – Maharashtra, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu; Gujarat Safety Council; Indian Technical Textile Association; Taloja Industrial Association; Thane Manufacturer Association and Indian Society of Ergonomics.

The expo will include an Innovation Zone which will be a platform for exhibitors to promote and showcase innovative products that will benefit the occupational safety and health industry at large. The innovative product /service or technology will have a chance to win ‘Best Product Innovation Award’ which will be presented to the winner onsite. This year, the expo will include a dedicated two day knowledge sharing classroom session on Powered Access which will be conducted by The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). This session will promote the safe and effective use of powered access in India.

This year’s two –day OSH conference aims to share and ideate on global best practices with delegates whilst the accompanying exhibition will help identify solutions to the most pressing challenges in workplace safety and health. The key sessions and panel discussions at the conference will be attended by industry experts from across the country and leading international organizations. Topics of discussion at the conference include: ‘Promoting a Broader Ownership of Health and Safety in India’, ‘Benchmarking Current Industry Practices for handling high Toxic Chemicals’ , ‘Accident Prevention: Hazard and Operability Analysis’, ‘Fire Safety Management and Audits, ‘Redefining Health and Safety Metrics: Tackling Occupational Disease,’ ‘Construction Safety: Design and Management’, ‘Emotional Intelligence to Create a Safer Workplace’, ‘Gender Sensitive Approach to Workplace Health and Safety,’ ‘The Role and Need for Accreditation in HSE’ and ‘Disaster Management/Crisis Management.’ A broad stratagem for the enhancement of women workers’ safety and health has to be built. The conference also aims to influence organisations to take a gender-sensitive approach and ensure employers implement risk management and protective measures addressing gender differences.

OSH India 2017 will also witness the ‘OSH India Safety Awards 2017’ which is open to Indian operating businesses, organizations, alliances and individuals in the public or private sector with a workplace health and safety initiative. The Awards Night slated for November 23 will be a celebration of the coming together of the luminaries and forerunners of the industry, marked by a night of glamour and entertainment.
