Safety & Health Expo returns to the NEC, Birmingham, from 11th to 13th May 2010. In addition to an exhibition comprising more than 300 exhibitors, the event will have a strong educational flavour

Safety & Health Expo, which will be hosted in partnership with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), attracted more than 19,000 industry professionals to the 2009 event.

Adrian Newton, portfolio director of Safety and Building Management at UBM Live, organiser of the event, said: "We took the opportunity in 2009 to launch a raft of exciting new features to complement the established mainstays of the event.

"These features were born out of comprehensive industry research and were a huge hit among our visitors.We will therefore be expanding the programmes in all our features to further enhance the visitor experience and look forward to building on last year's successes." More than 300 industry renowned companies will showcase their latest developments, including 3M, ARCO, BM Polyco, British Red Cross, Connaught Compliance Training Services, Draeger, Latchways, Moldex, Safety Media, Scott Health & Safety, Sperian and Totectors.

Education Education will once again take centre stage, with four dedicated seminar theatres throughout the show.

The SHP Legal Arena will host a new and informative programme dedicated to exploring the key aspects of health and safety law concerning practitioners today. Over the three days, there will be a number of keynote presentations from experienced health and safety barristers and solicitors. Topics will include corporate manslaughter, accident investigation and fire safety.

Following its successful launch last year, the Product and Innovation Hub, sponsored by ARCO, returns to allow visitors to discover new products and innovations from across the industry. Presentations will be delivered by health and safety manufacturers, distributors and suppliers.

IOSH will also be presenting updates on recent developments in the IOSH Stand Theatre. The sessions will provide information and updates on CPD, training courses and technical guidance.

Explosive Substances Live, presented by Denios, is back with a bang in 2010 to deliver informative, lively and thoroughly entertaining experimental lectures. These graphic demonstrations will highlight the consequences that can arise when flammable materials are incorrectly handled.

Access Industry Forum (AIF), the umbrella organisation representing the principal trade bodies and associations connected with working at height, is also returning to Safety & Health Expo with an exciting new programme. The new AIF Knowledge Base will provide a seminar style event delivering informative and current content throughout the three days.
