Brought to you by the largest exhibition organisers in East Africa is a brand new exhibition for the safety market in Kenya that will run from 8-10 November 2016 at the Visa Oshwal Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.
K-OSH is the only trade exhibition that focuses solely on the occupational safety and health market in East Africa and will feature local and international exhibitors that will be showcasing a wide range of products. Stands will include footwear, helmets, warning signs, high visibility wear, masks as well as all protective clothing.
K-OSH will run alongside Securexpo East Africa which was launched and ran last year and is the largest commercial security exhibition in the region. Alexander Angus, Regional Director of Montgomery ECO East Africa, spoke on the recent launch. “Running this exhibition alongside Securexpo was an obvious choice. Both verticals attract very similar visitors and will therefore allow them to see more products whilst visiting the exhibition.”
The safety industry in Kenya is one that is going through a great deal of change. Although systems for ensuring the safety of personnel have always been in place, it has only been in the last few months where the regulations are being enforced. This is resulting in many local organisations tightening up their safety measures by investing in the newest products. K-OSH will give these companies the needed platform to promote their products to this demand.
Companies are already being confirmed to exhibit at K-OSH. Hubix, a Polish company that supplies specialist tools for working with high voltages is one of these companies that has confirmed to be taking part at the exhibition.
Within K-OSH, a free-to-attend conference will run during the exhibition. This will focus on new legislation, best practice and the developments on the industry in East Africa. This platform will allow local companies to be able to use the event to learn more about the industry. With the ongoing changes, this will be imperative to allow individuals to learn about what is now needed.
