Birmingham’s NEC to host Health and Safety 2016 event

The NEC is to play host to this year’s health and safety exhibition and conference

The three-day health and safety exhibition and conference is to take place at Birmingham’s NEC in March and the event’s organisers are hoping this year’s “THREE days to save a life” theme will pack enough punch to further improve the UK’s leading health and safety in the workplace record.

The British Safety Council and The International Institute for Risk Safety Management (IIRSM) are the organisations behind the exhibition and, reports say, they will be putting on quite an impressive show, with the help of a panel of health and safety experts who will be holding talks and leading interactive educational experiences.

The exhibition will be running from 22–24 March 2016, and speakers include former RAF pilot and England rugby player, Rory Underwood, and the director of general regulation within the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Kevin Myers, to name just two.

Visitors will have access to the free health and safety conference and will also have the chance to browse 200 exhibitor booths. But the organisers have also set up a selection of extra features to provide an element of interaction for the event’s visitors.

There will be a chance for visitors to ask questions and offer their opinion in the Safety Dialogue Theatre, which will see a panel of experts (including figures from the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) and the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS)) answer questions and debate issues with visitors.

And, to add an element of fun into the proceedings, event exhibitors will take to the stage twice a day to pitch their health and safety ideas in the ‘Lion’s Lair’, where a panel of experts and the audience will decide the winner.
