|Members of the BSIA’s Lone Worker section are looking forward to another successful year at the Safety and Health Expo which runs alongside IFSEC International as part of UBM’s wider Protection and Management Series. Taking place over the 16-18th June 2015, the Safety and Health Expo brings exhibitors together with an impressive audience of buyers and specifiers.
The BSIA’s Lone Worker section comprises of companies who specialise in providing lone worker products and services to customers across a wide range of industry backgrounds. Several member companies will be showcasing the latest in lone worker technology and offering expert insights on protecting employees that work unsupervised over the course of the event.
James Kelly, Chief Executive at the BSIA, comments: “Last year’s move to London created a real buzz around the Safety and Health Expo, so in 2015 – with the show now firmly established in the capital – our expectations are that it will continue to grow from strength to strength. Three issues close to the BSIA’s heart – innovation, education and sharing best practice – are all key to the show’s programme in 2015, and as such, the Association is delighted to reinforce its keen support of the event.”
Several BSIA members have shared their own previews of the technology and services that they will be showcasing at the Safety and Health Expo, brief excerpts from these previews are detailed below:
