Putting people first with uncompromising OSH

Issue 2/3 2023 Security Services & Risk Management, Facilities & Building Management

A-OSH EXPO 2023, which is being held at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 6 to 8 June 2023, is Africa’s largest platform for organisations sourcing occupational safety and health (OSH) products and services.

“Organisations need to heed the call to make the workplace safer for employees. There is not only legislation outlining what is required from employers in the OHS Act, but furthermore, it speaks to the value placed on human capital by organisations. The benefits of adopting OHS programmes at work are twofold: firstly, compliance with regulations are met, and secondly, employees are more productive,” says Mark Anderson, Portfolio Director at Specialised Exhibitions — a division of Montgomery Group.

The value of visiting A-OSH EXPO is clear from the comments of visitors to last year’s exhibition. Neo Seerane from Black Brains Work says, “I came through to see what was on offer at the A-OSH EXPO and the co-located, Securex, Facilities Management Expo, and Firexpo, and found all to be highly informative and interesting. It was a great opportunity to see how exhibitors, particularly on the health and safety side, have changed and improved their offerings since 2019.”

A-OSH EXPO is co-located with the 30-year-old Securex exhibition, the established Facilities Management Expo and the recently launched Firexpo. “This means that visitors are able to source a wide range of safety and security solutions from exhibitors at all four expos, all under one roof. The time and cost-saving benefits are clear, and visitors can further maximise their time at the expos by pre-registering to attend online,” says Anderson.

Amongst the products exhibited this year are the Blackline Safety connected gas detection and lone-worker monitoring technology from Trigas (Stand A29). The Blackline Safety G7 and the Blackline Live portal provide businesses with real-time visibility through (a) built-in cellular connectivity (or with optional satellite and portable bridge, for remote or hard-to access locations); (b) location technology, including geo-stamped alert status from any Internet connected device; and (c) direct-to-cloud data streaming for real-time information at your fingertips.

Saryx Engineering Group (Stand D05) will showcase its award-winning digital health and safety solution HSEC Online at A-OSH EXPO. The cloud-based solution works to eliminate the risks often encountered with a manual health and safety filing system by allowing companies and contractors to securely capture, store, distribute and manage health and safety document compliance digitally and in real-time. HSEC Online enables organisations of all sizes and industries reach zero harm by minimising the risk of non-compliance.

GfG (Stand C06) specialises in gas detection, with safety as a priority. Products include portable gas detectors for personal protection and fixed gas detection systems that monitor entire sites. On offer are a wide variety of instrumentation with the most advanced sensor technologies for detecting flammable and toxic gases and vapours, as well as oxygen.

Runrite’s alcohol testers are designed to ensure safe and responsible workplace environments. The company also specialises in compliance level gas detection, providing safety for employees working in hazardous environments. Runrite is excited to showcase the brand new Alcolizer Centurion Quantum on its Stand AA08 at the Expo this year.

As the owner of the KuduWave, VBS (Stand D02) brings hearing testing to millions of people across all continents. The KuduWave is an industry-credited, clinically validated diagnostic audiometer that is fully boothless and can seamlessly integrate bone conduction, using high frequency testing for screening and full diagnostic tests. The KuduWave is enabled with telemedicine, allowing users to test and diagnose patients in real-time in almost any location, including remotely.

In addition to thousands of products and technologies on show at the four co-located shows, A-OSH EXPO visitors will benefit from the new products display, the Premier Visitor Lounge, the Saiosh free-to-attend Seminar Theatre powered by Saiosh, and the free-to-attend Working at Height Theatre. “The seminar theatres are characterised by high-quality topics and themes, presented by respected spokespeople in the occupational and safety space,” says Anderson.
