For eight years the annual A-OSH Expo has provided a platform for knowledge exchange and relationship building, as well as for the sharing of information on the latest thinking, products, trends and legislation within the occupational health and safety (OHS) sphere.

Last year, more than 2 600 visitors descended on the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand, and the organisers are expecting a repeat performance between May 22
and 24.

In 2018, Africa’s largest OHS show will offer visitors access to new and established suppliers and service providers in the field, as well as to a range of content through its free-to-attend seminars. These are again organised by the Institute of Safety Management (IOSM) and the South African Protective Equipment Marketing Association (SAPEMA).

Among others, this year’s topics include: New and upcoming OHS legislation and regulations; ISO 45001 – the new OHS management system standard is here; Smart PPE: what we can expect in the future; Becoming a really competent occupational health and safety practitioner; and The impact of the new ergonomics regulations on business.

The PASMA Working at Heights Theatre makes a return, too. There is always something new to learn about this most interesting area of work, which is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

In addition, the Saiosh annual conference (which is a paid-for event) runs alongside the A-OSH expo for the eighth year in a row, and presents its own content session for attending members. More details can be found on the Saiosh website.
