OSH India & Facilities Show India
Organiser Informa Markets in India is set to bring in South Asia’s largest occupational safety and health industry show, Occupational Health and Safety India (OSH India), along with the UK-originated Facilities Show India in their virtual formats on 29 July.
Commenting on the 3rd virtual edition of OSH and 2nd virtual edition of Facilities Show India, Yogesh Mudras, managing director of Informa Markets in India, said: “Occupational safety and health in India continues to be a tough task, especially with the current pandemic situation. Focusing on occupational safety is a priority and need of the hour, with the gradual return to the workplace in a new normal.”
With more than 40% of India’s population expected to live in cities by 2030, there is a need to envision and implement initiatives in the facilities management space to manage this rapid and massive urbanisation. In addition, Covid-19 has made the task of ensuring a safe and hygienic workplace a challenge.
According to International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates, every year over 2.3m women and men die at work from an occupational injury or disease. Over 350,000 deaths are due to fatal accidents and almost 2m deaths are due to fatal work-related diseases.
This context promotes the expos’ virtual knowledge forums to comprise topics such as How HSE in Organisations has Shaped Up Post the onslaught of Covid-19 and Designing Facilities that Ensure Health & Wellness at the Workplace. The expos will also have technical workshops conducted by brands like sure safety, and TATA Communication.
IFSEC India Expo
The International Fire & Security Exhibition and Conference (IFSEC) India Expo will host its 3rd virtual edition, also on 29 July. IFSEC India Virtual Expo, co-hosted with OSH India and Facilities Show India, will showcase the latest technologies and innovations for the real-world problem of securing the life of citizens and critical infrastructure.
Supported by ASIS Bengaluru and Mumbai Chapters, IISSM, GACS and Mitkat Advisory, the expo will bring together brands, consultants, business experts and key Government officials pertaining to the safety and security industry under a common virtual platform.
The global commercial security system market size is projected to grow from US$223.9bn in 2021 to $342.6bn by 2026; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during this forecast period.
Speaking at the announcement of IFSEC Virtual Expo, Mudras said: “We are thrilled to continue with our series of virtual expos for IFSEC India considering the current challenging times during the pandemic.
